Silent running: Computer sounds are so '90s



To my mind, however, Microsoft hit a high point for event audio with Windows 95. Subsequent releases of Windows have never reached such glorious levels of gratuitous audio; indeed, the startup and shutdown sounds these days are little more than clicks or bips.

How dare you overlook that Vista's "soundscapes" were imagineered by bleedin' Robert Fripp?

People gonna forget how rock'n'roll MICROS~1 used to be ;)
