All the wavs in that folder say deepz0ne but that does not mean anything.
Just because you do a search and it comes to some cracker does not mean this is what MS did.
WHy would they do that as if they wanted they could by the whole company?

The reviewer here has the same name that appears in the files but I don't think he is a hacker.

Some info for you in case you did not know....the name you see in a wav file is the person who produced or authored the wav file.

Would you say someone who works for Sourceforge hacks?

Did you find that nick via a search or did you confuse "sourceforge" with "soundforge"? I think it's possible for more then 1 person online to be using the nick "deepz0ne".

Oh well, with /. being such a huge site, it should probably generate enough buzz for us to get some kind of real/official answer.

Exactly my point, thanks
Just because the wav was authored by deepz0ne does not mean it was the one who was or is a hacker.

Anything is possible. Also should be cracker not hacker .. sorry to be picky but is a world of difference and bothers me sometimes.

looks like this was already posted...
hehe

sorry dudes!





I just found this absolutely insane article. too funny. check it out!!

"An anonymous reader writes "German PC-Welt magazine reports that Microsoft used an illegal copy of SoundForge 4.5 (Google translation) for editing Wave files shipped with Windows Media Player. You can check that yourself by opening any file in the [Windows location] \Help\Tours\WindowsMediaPlayer\Audio\Wav\ folder in notepad or other editors of your choice and looking at the last line. There you will find a reference to SoundForge 4.5 and also a user called 'Deepz0ne' who happens to be one of the founders of an audio software cracking group called Radium."

It is unclear if Microsoft took the file off of a royalty-free sound effects library, outsourced its sound editing to someone with an illegal copy or used a warez version of SoundForge itself.
So many possibilities...and all of them are quite plausible.

It has reached big "geek" sites like /. they will know soon enough if they don't already (I don't see how they couldn't).

'Bladierfelt' (his commercial name is 'Bill Brown) composed the samples for microsoft who was sub-contracted to do them. Then was released into retail editions of windows from microsoft. 'Bill brown' is the composer and musician
responsible for the sample bytes.

So the original story is sort of right but a little out of context. I suppose though when it comes down to black & white, they did use a Radium version to edit their samples redardless of any work sub-contracted through a 3rd party.
The composers website . . . Check Item 11
