Jim, imagine a world where every application played a little tune whenever
it started or closed.  I think most users would quickly disable their
speakers or install the noisy apps.  It's bad enough when the OS does it.

If you had a friend that sang "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic or Whitney
Houston's "I Will Always Love You" every time he answered the phone or
before saying goodbye, how often would you call him?
