It wasn't written for Windows XP at all, and rather was just a track they had lying around since Windows 98.
I feel old now, as I remember this music pre-dating even Windows 98, arriving with an early release of Internet Explorer.

There is a video about this track and it's origins on YouTube - the composer died recently.


The more interesting one is the 'Welcome to Windows 98' music, which apparently was part of a longer track which has never seen the light of day.
