Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP
by Arie Slob
Hello Windows users,
Microsoft will continue with the tradition of offering a Plus! pack with its latest operating system. Microsoft first offered a Plus! pack with Windows 95, and later with its successor Windows 98.
Plus! for Windows XP includes:
- Four new Themes: Aquarium, Space, Nature, and da Vinci.
- Three new games: Russian Square, The Labyrinth, and Hyperbowl.
- Eight screen savers
- Digital Media Tools, which include Voice Command for Windows Media Player, MP3 Audio Converter, CD Label Maker, Speaker Enhancement, Personal DJ, WMP Skins, and 3-D Visualizations.
There's nothing that you will miss, unless you are fond of these visual enhancements. I have a bunch of screenshots on the Windows XP site, so you can check it out if you are interested.
You can pre-order Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP at Amazon ($39.99).
