Eno created the Windows '95 operating system's six-second start up music despite later admitting that he's never used a PC.
In 1996, Eno helped to set up the Long Now Foundation, a non-profit organisation which aims to provide a counterpoint to today's "faster/cheaper" mindset.
In 2007, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg appointed Eno to advise on youth issues and help fix Britain's 'broken politics.'
