    None of the above! Most are pretty Nerdly!

    However, on one of the XP Service Pack disks, there was a very musical .wav file that I captured and have used ever since then as my "Startup" sound. (that is, till Vista and W7 with the captured startup sound that cannot easily be changed.)

    I really think the sound is not necessary. Mircrosoft might consider to remove it.

    They effectively did that with Win-7, when they took away the users option to have whatever startup sound he/she wanted.
    If someone is an experienced hacker, they can change the startup sound, but otherwise it's a Yes or NO option.

    Was that the beginning of the end? I hope not!

    I believe that TM is right on this, as I've not found a way to change the startup sound. There are ways of changing event sounds (like opening of apps, or shutting down) by changing to one of the MS approved themes, but I don't recall it changing the startup sound. Once logged on (after the default music has played), then it'll change to that of the theme.

    The sound, I could care less about anyway. However, I do like to custom my Win 7/8 RP look, I use one of the cat themes for both. Not because most calls me Cat, but because I have one & love animals. As far as the sound goes, it could be muted & I wouldn't miss it.
