Motion Desktop, Dreamscene, or whatever you want to call it is not on the CD/DVD. MS is releasing it as a download on the 30th as an Ultimate Extra.

Yeah but the "dreamscene" desktop feature is an ultimate feature that you download after you install it...and it's not up for download yet.

EDIT: haha, ancient beat me to it

This is from my new convertible tablet I just picked up about a week ago. I'm seriously loving this thing. I've got Vista Ultimate running on it without a hitch. The tablet functionality is far superior to XP's. I was so sick of using my (non-tablet) XP laptop. It was too old and clunky to run Vista reasonably. I've fallen in love with laptops all over again and I owe that in large part to Vista. I can't wait for the ultimate extras to pop up in the next 24hrs.



FYI I also have ultimate running on my primary and secondary desktops at home. I said this before, but with vista I've been doing more actual computing and less troubleshooting. I honestly can't say enough about how much I've been enjoying Vista. I've been running it solid now since RTM.
