    Right after you install Windows XP, when you're going through the "Let's Set Up Your Computer" wizard, if you let the background muzak run long enough, it get a little Gregorian chant thing going on.

    OOBE: "Out-Of-Box Experience"

    Start > Run > C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\images\title.wma > ok

    You don't need to re-install Windows XP to hear it.
    Although you will need to show system files (in folder options) to see the wma file

    It runs for 5min 27seconds. It was made by Brian Eno who also composed the music for Windows 95 startup as well.
    Imagine that, the guy's famous (as we've all heard his music) but his name is generally unknown.
    Anyway he should be proud of this "ambient music" ;)

    Check out Lay My Love from the same guy - he's quite eclectic. It's from the Northern Exposure soundtrack if I remember correctly

    It was written by Brian Eno, huh? I can believe that, I have a couple of his albums.
