Update: Windows Vista Start-Up Sound

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!

  1. I agree that it is wrong that Microsoft wants control over the start-up sound, and I am not saying this because I was one of the beta testers. Those f***en idiots thing that they can screw the consumer in the end, but they are wrong!
