As a long-time Mac user I find the absence of that sound disturbing. I did an upgrade on a G5 once and then spent an hour or more trying to figure out why I wasn't hearing any startup sound. No broken glass sound just no sound. Turns out I hand re-connected my external speaker to the headphone port but never powered up the speaker.
