    the boot beep is far too loud

    1. 2

      So fairly historically accurate, then? (To be fair, while I may have used an IBM PC of that vintage a few times, I don’t have any specific memory of the beep, but it doesn’t seem that far off for later hardware.)

      1. 3

        I don’t care if it’s historically accurate or not. A 100% volume square wave is not what I want to hear.

        1. 2

          How did the original PC speaker work? How many volume levels were available?

          1. 1

            Doesn’t make “unmuted by default” less bad.

          2. 1

            Having experienced it on headphones, I have to agree.
