    I'm sure this has been discussed already, but I have to yell to somebody...

    I was at a PC store earlier and they had Plus XP for $40 (US). I didn't think that was all bad until I read somewhere that you have purchase extra parts for the games and screensaver.

    Now curious, I downloaded a (admittedly) non-legal copy of Plus and saw it is basically a collection of Demos! Yuk! You can bet I got rid of that crap right away!

    What is MS thinking?!? You spend $40 for a demo CD?? Then pay for extra fish!?!? WTF!

    It would have been better for MS to sell "Plus!" with fully functional parts for the price they wanted. Nobody would've bought it, but then MS would see how ridiculous it is!

    It's pretty bad when a full so-called "plus" pack (with all the extras paid for) would run about half the cost (or more) of the OS itself! (you can buy XP full Pro for $150 if you buy some type of hardware with it).

    Anyway, that's my rant. Thanks for listening :rolleyes:

    I purchased XP Plus also, and I agree. The same with Hyperbowl. I do think that was a rip off. Oh well.

    most of microsoft's plus packs are useless anyways. just another way to generate $$$ for mr. gates.
