Windows 95 bootup tune was created on a Mac

Posted on Thursday, November 24 2011 @ 14:49:55 CET by

In a blast from the past, Neowin digs up a story about the start up music of Windows 95. The tune was composed by Brian Eno, but in an interview with BBC from 2009, Eno revealed the music was composed on an Apple Mac and that he has never used a PC in his life because he doesn't like them.
Eno got a list of what the music should sound like from Microsoft, which included 150 adjectives. Some of those adjectives included words like "inspirational" "sexy", "driving", "provocative", "nostalgic" and "sentimental", which is a lot to project for just a few seconds of music. But the big revelation came when the BBC interviewer asked, naturally, if Eno had written the Windows 95 music on a PC. Eno replied, "No I wrote it on a Mac. I’ve never used a PC in my life; I don’t like them". Ouch.
