I guess enough folks finally complained loudly enough for Microsoft to listen to them! Last month I talked about the Windows Vista start-up/boot-up sound ‘crisis’ in my entry: Windows Vista Boot-Up Sound. On Sunday (Sept 24th), comes some good news, via CyberNet News: Microsoft Lets Users Disable Vista’s Startup Sound:
In the latest build, version 5728 that was just released the other day, you’ll find a new option in the Sound Control Panel. There is a checkbox that says “Play Windows Startup Sound”
Never understood what the big deal was to Microsoft about the start-up sound. Though it seems Microsoft wants to still have control over the start-up sound, since they do not give the user and option to change the sound played at start-up. I guess we should consider this a ‘compromise’ on Microsoft’s part!
