Ubuntu Start-up Sound Survey Result
The Chosen Candidate 
here's the winner, Does this sound feel like Ubuntu ?

Next step, canonical design team will make this sound ‘more human, less synthesised’, lowering the pitch, increasing ‘the warmth of the tone’, and make it available in Ubuntu 12.04.

There is a few question, from previous post that confirmed by Jeremy bischa, for some reason Ubuntu 12.04 will be no sound at startup, does this survey mean that start-up sound will be sounded again in Ubuntu 12.04, is anyone could confirm this ?
