Interesting! Some of those sounds are very repetitive and annoying at the same time. I remember some of those sounds very well. :D

Alot of those sounds bring back fond memories! :happy: you can also see there is a very obvious correlation between how computers got faster over the years and the boot/login sound got shorter!

And to think that Steve Jobs said Microsoft had got no taste back then. :p That Windows XP sound is so melodious and cheerful. The Mac sounds are like "WTF? This from Apple?"

Did someone actually find a copy of Interface Manager? I've only seen blurry 30 year old photocopy pictures from when they previewed it.

Are the longhorn sounds real? Aren't those the fake ones?

I went checking around and found this link, it says those screenshots are fake and that there are no known existing copies before the official 1.01 release.

I'll check again though, it would be awesome to try it out.
