the only thing more annoying than a computer making strange noises is - two or more of them, which can happen in offices, families etc. The beauty/annoyingness of sound is even more dependent on individual tastes than the beauty of visual things like guis (MS does help training people to ugliness there) Please make the sound be turned off by default, and make it use the system sound/beep if possible.
