Easter eggs a no-no in Microsoft products?
I never knew of this DOS 2.0 easter egg
but this article
brings up some interesting points. Microsoft has forbidden their employees from planting easter eggs in any of their products, stating that it is grounds for immediate dissmissal. Why? I know that (and the article touches on this) as a gamer, I have spent countles hours trying to obtain certain items in a given Final Fantasy game, or searched for days on end for skulls in Halo 2 and the time spent resulted in me spending that much more time with the game and that much more time talking about it. I think throwing in a bug or two here or there is pretty harmless. As long as their not of the "hot coffee" variety.
