    Unlike graphic art, Microsoft does outsource their music production. You may have heard about the fiasco earlier this year when it was revealed that the Windows XP Startup sound was made using a warez'd copy of SoundForge.

    ...but AFAIA Microsoft usually just buys sounds, SFX, and music from existing libraries.

    I'm betting on Rachmaninov's 3rd Piano Concerto. All 25 minutes of it.

    "To wish impossible things" by The Cure. Suitable for the ever moving launch date and missing WinFS. Or maybe "It's about time" by The Lemonheads?
