    Examples of premium features which Microsoft potentially could lock down under Genuine Advantage include Windows Photo Gallery; Windows Media Center; Windows DVD Maker; and games like Texas Hold 'Em Poker that are part of the downloadable Vista Ultimate Extras products and services.

    There are a number of new Vista features which Microsoft is making available only to users of its consumer- and small-business-focused "premium" Vista editions -- Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate.
