A Windows 1.0 Easter Egg has been kept secret for nearly 40 years – Geek Review

Lucas Brooks, Microsoft

A new Easter egg has appeared on Windows 1.0, a 37 -year -old operating system. Seen by tinkerer Lucas BrooksThe Easer Egg will not be unlocked at the time of the release of Windows 1.0 due to the nature of the installation.

As explained by Lucas Brooks, the Easter Egg represents a list of credits for most (if not all) of the Windows company. These developers aren’t known for their role, although common names are included, such as Gabe Newell (of Valve fame) and Steve Ballmer (everyone’s favorite hype guy).

Microsoft cheated on this Easter Egg at the end of the “Smiley Face” bitmap file, and from a technical standpoint, it’s impossible to tell when Windows 1.0 was released. Lucas Brooks could get into it by changing binaries and pulling out other cheats – we’re not sure if Microsoft intends to leave this Easter Egg on Windows, by the way.

Previously, Windows users thought that Easter Eggs would not be known until Windows 3.0. That Windows experience included an Easter Egg loan and some hints at Microsoft Bear, the mascot for the Windows 3.1 development team.
