Hi, I am fed up with the standard sound scheme in Windows XP and wondered, if anyone has found any good sound schemes for Windows anywhere? I am not looking for movie/cartoon sounds etc., but computer related event sounds (like mac sounds).

I did a search on Google and I found zip.

Anyone? :blink:

Sounds are no longer cool, most people disable them and they haven't been popular since MS released Plus! for Windows with theme support...

I disabled sounds a long time ago, it'd be very embarrasing to forget to mute my computer and have it start up with the welcome noise when I open my laptop in class

I'll say it again. My current sound scheme is Borealis. It's a KDE sound theme, although you can use any Windows archive program to open the TAR file. Not only that, but you have to manually set sounds yourself (the files are available in WAV format). However it's quite relaxing and subtle, and not distracting at all.

And the startup sounds... whew. There are 4 startup sounds (and two shutdown sounds). The last startup sound is just... wow.

I pulled the sounds that I liked out of the linux distro of ubuntu. I just love the startup sound.
