Because I missed it, all right?

Nobukazu Takemura worked as a sound designer for Sony's Aibo robot dog. I think that's pretty cool. Surprisingly, Microsoft is no stranger to avant-garde musicians either. The classic chimey opening sound for Windows 95, creatively titled "The Microsoft Sound," was made by none other than Brian Eno, who was told to record a 3 1/4 seconds-long composition, and did so using his Macintosh. And in the modern era, Windows Vista, the OS which will in theory link your computer intuitively to your TV, home stereo, and government's surveillance (which recently upgraded to USB 2.0), is getting sounds made by Robert Fripp from King Crimson.

I'm just hoping for a distribution of Red Hat Linux that comes with Grand Ulena alert noises.
