Microsoft delivers Texas Hold'em Poker among other things for Vista Ultimate users
For those of you who have plunked down the extra cash for the version of Windows Vista that is at the top of the totem pole, there are a couple of new Vista Ultimate Extras available for download right now. Last night, right before the official launch of Vista, Microsoft pushed out Windows Texas Hold'em Poker and BitLocker and EFS Enhancements.
According to Paul Thurrott, Windows Texas Hold'em Poker requires a minimum Windows Experience Index of 1.0 to run and 2.0 to operate at optimum levels. Given that mostly enthusiasts will be gunning for Windows Vista Ultimate, this shouldn't be a problem at all.
The "Bitlocker and EFS Enhancements" are listed as follows:
* Windows BitLocker Drive Preparation Tool - configures your hard drive so that you can use the BitLocker Drive Encryption feature of Windows Vista.
* Secure Online Key Backup - stores a backup copy of your BitLocker recovery password and Encrypting File System (EFS) recovery certificates in your digital locker, a secure Microsoft website.
