In this article, we will focus on the Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP [Old Version], which was launched alongside the Windows XP operating system on October 25, 2001.


This version of Microsoft Plus! was created to show off the enhanced capabilities that Windows XP presented with its updated Windows Media Player and DirectX 3D core technologies. It included various features such as themes, screen savers, games, and utilities. Some of the features were:

  • Plus! Themes: Aquarium, Nature, da Vinci and Space.

The Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP [Old Version] had an initial cost of US$39.95. It was later replaced by the Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition for Windows XP in 2003, which focused more on digital media applications such as photo editing, video editing, and DVD burning. The Microsoft Plus! SuperPack for Windows XP in 2004 combined both versions into one product.

The Microsoft Plus! product line was discontinued and replaced by Windows Ultimate Extras in Windows Vista. These were optional features that could be downloaded by users of the Ultimate edition of Windows Vista. However, they were criticized for being few and late in delivery.

The Microsoft Plus! products were generally well-received by users and critics, as they added fun and functionality to the Windows operating systems. They also showcased the potential of the new technologies and features that Microsoft developed. The Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP [Old Version] was one of the most popular editions, as it enhanced the user experience of the widely used Windows XP operating system.
