    Mandriva Startup and Shutdown

    During a chat on Discord a few friends were talking about operating systems. This made me realize that my favorite startup sounds were for Windows 95 and the Mandriva Linux distribution.

    There's a recording of the Win 95 startup and shutdown sounds on YouTube already, but none for Mandriva. So with much blood, sweat, and tears I was able to get the sounds off an old ISO and publish them on YouTube. Behold! (Though maybe turn your speakers down a bit first.)

    I'm feeling kind of a Jungle/Tribal theme to those sounds. It does make me wonder, though, does anyone even hear the startup sounds anymore? I know on Windows 10 the startup sound is disabled by default.

      I think it can be enabled/disabled on various Linux distributions. I don't know what the default is though.

        I think it would be cool to be able to have a playlist of startup/shutdown sounds that would be chosen from with each boot. That would keep things fresh.

          There might be a display-manager script or somesuch that exists... or could be made.
