Good old-fashioned trivia: Who is he and what is his claim to fame?

Cracked by Goyal , Rohan , udupendra , Debasish , jayanth , varuns88 and rajeshvj.

Answer

Brian Eno, creator of the (in)famous Windows 95 startup sound. Some missed out the second part, but i’m feeling generous :)

    Brian Eno – Claim to fame “Joshua Tree – U2” & “Viva la Vida – Coldplay”

    What I don’t understand is the connection of the title of the question and relation to tech? (other than the electronic synthesizer)

    That is Brian Eno, and he has many claims to fame, all of them musical.

    But on boiledbeans, I’d say you are referring to the Windows start up sound.


  4. Brian Eno
    Windows Startup Sound
    Blind Guess taken by looking at the music equipment around him.


  5. brian eno. composed the windows startup tune

    Brian Eno.
    Are you guys looking for the ‘disgraceful’ MS Windows 95 Startup sound ?
