Vista opening sound will be compulsory

I do not report each and every little news about the upcoming Windows XP replacement. But today, we are learning that Microsoft marketing got one weird idea. Since they want Vista to show a “common, and beautiful, face to the world”, they decided that the music/sound provided by Microsoft as an opening sound for Windows Vista will be compulsory (you will not have any way to shut it down).

The RC1 test version already had the testers annoyed at this feature, but I can imagine some companies where, between 8:00 and 8:15, it will be an awful cacophony in the cubicles.
