This might be better suited to Software Finds and Wants but since it's an XP only release, I thought I would post it here instead.

As you may be aware, Microsoft released the Plus! Digital Media Edition this week. If you got burned by the first Plus! package, this one is actually worth it. It's got several nifty features, including an alarm clock, party mode for WMP, new CD label templates, and more. It's a coy way to promote the new Windows Media releases, but after the disappointment that was the original Plus! pack, this makes up for it and I don't care!

My personal favorite is the utterly frivolous dancers. They're quite entertaining while you're plugging away at your desk.

At any rate, XP users would do well to investigate the product. For me, the alarm clock alone was worth the purchase price, $19.99 USD. Throw in the other features, particularly the Photo Story, and you've got a nice little package. But don't tell requires activation. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
