Something I'd love to have on the Mac, but would be nice on any platform: A "what was that sound?" log. The Macs are constantly making noises that are clearly trying to inform me of something, be it an inbound email or an inbound chat or something else, I've figured out (and turned off) most of 'em, but there are still one or two "WTF?" sounds that I'm trying to figure out.

Maybe on the Mac most apps play nicely and you could turn on the hearing-impaired mode ("BEEP!").

On Windows, I assume there's someway to make a system message scanner that filtered out messages sent to the sound subsystem.
