Student Research Inquiry of Windows artistic development. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am student of computer technology at my community college.  These are some formulated business question made for a major research assignment.

    While releasing new operation system, how are Windows pre-installed photograph wallpapers chosen?

    What is the inspiration of the mono-colored design of the current Windows logo vs more organic looking ones?

    What is the process of choosing the system sounds integrated within a Windows OS, why include sounds?

    I appreciate anyone how can write responses or direct me to other forms with answers.

    It does not sound to me like learning computer technology but computer technology history!

    I hope for your sake that you learn computer technology as well !

    These answers will not help unless you learn to become diplomat or a sales man :-(
    Both are "not in my school" :-)

    Anyhow, here is the answer from Microsoft blog:
