    I was so impressed when Brian Eno had the music for Windows 95 Startup, that I made a wave file from Another Green World and set it as my startup sound just to be different.

    When I had XP on my Dell (now running 7, of course), I set it up to use The Microsoft Sound from Win95. Alas, can't change the startup sound in Vista or 7 to something different.

    I was addicted to the Windows 95 startup sound. It was like a spiritual high every time I heard it. Very comforting.

    I wonder what RZ67 lens they used for the XP picture?

    But was it Velvia, Velvia50 or Velvia100?? Hahaha I assume it has to have been either original Velvia or Velvia50? Was Velvia100 around then?

    ALSO
    He did say he took about 4 frames... BUT when describing how Windows bought the photograph it sounded like they only purchased one of them, so does he secretly hold onto the other three frames??

    I'll bet on Velvia 50, the early stuff. I'm thinking out of the 4 frames, as he stated the weather was fleeting, maybe the clouds covered the FG light a bit in other frames taken. Regardless, it sure was an excellent take and an interesting story in the end.......

    I'm surprised they didn't sell this space for advertising.

    Yes but original Velvia or Velvia50?

    Good stuff. And if he has the other 4 frames he probably wasn't going to admit it on the interview and risk being sued or something.

    He probably also made a dupe

    Ken
    The image that is said to be most viewed is computer generated. It has been digitized by a computer then reconstructed with colored lights by a computer.

    Looking at that any thinking you are seeing an analog photograph is like viewing a bottle of wine on your computer and believing you have tasted it.
