Windows Microsoft's Windows Vista RC 1 is done. Now it's up to the estimated 6 million testers to which the company is planning to release the code to determine if it really is ready for prime time. Microsoft has posted the RC 1 build, Number 5600, on its TechBeta Web sites for select technical beta testers, including TAP partners, on September 1. Microsoft is planning to broaden the beta to include up to six million participants, total, some time next week, according to industry sources. Cnet has a video introduction to Vista RC1. Elsewhere, people are going bonkers over Vista's... Start up sound. Major Tom to ground control?

It's apparently not the case any more, but older mac startup chimes DO change for bootup errors, in a predictable way. Some of them are really almost musical. Wikipedia has it under "Chimes of Death" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimes_of_Death
