Remember Windows 95? The little theme that would play when you booted up? Turns out it was composed by Brian Eno… on a Mac.

Music legend Brian Eno has recently described the process of being hired by Microsoft to create a selection of possible themes for Windows 95.

Speaking on BBC’s The Museum of Curiosity Eno said the he was given a list of adjectives which the four second piece should convey — including inspirational, sexy, driving, provocative and nostalgic.

Then he revealed that he used an Apple Mac to knock up 83 pieces for Microsoft to choose from before adding the kicker.

No I wrote it on a Mac. I’ve never used a PC in my life; I don’t like them,” he said.
