The user experience is a high priority for Windows Vista, and part of that "experience" are the sounds that come with the operating system. It's incredible the amount of work that goes in to capturing that perfect sound to represent different events in Vista, and we went to the trouble of drafting in Robert Fripp who I've personally never heard of, but my dad says was pivotal to the music era of the sixties (apparently). Despite me not knowing who he is, he hails from a sleepy part of England called Dorset - and whilst that bears no relevance whatsover to the sounds in Vista, does mean he is British - which for me at least is something to be proud of.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
