Anyone else find the startup tune a little strange?

- doesn't matter I am aware, just thought it was a little random.

It's an African sound - very suitable.

I dont like it. I loved the old startup tune of Dapper.

That sound used to change every release - but it's been that one for a few releases now. I wonder when it'll be updated.

Yah, dapper was my favourite. If any of you still have it, I would like to change it to dapper's.

Also, if any of you have dapper's desktop paper, I would like that as well.

I really liked the development sounds for Edgy(?). They were removed right before release because they were too long. I'll see if I can find them.

I have no nVidia splash, did you enable this as its not installed for me by default

Found them on a deleted wiki page:


http://progbox.co.uk/ubuntu7-X-fade-rev.mp3 I think was the one the current theme was derived from. I'm surprised they're still up.

I hate the one for UbuntuStudio. If I wanted to hear a fake piano with lots of reverb, I'd make the sound myself!

The regular Ubuntu one with the conga drums is cool :)
