Easter is soon approaching, and lucky is Lucas Brook who recently discovered an Easter Egg is the very first version of Windows 1.0. Lucas, an avid Windows user posted a Tweet showing this secret and undiscovered Easter Egg in Windows 1.0 which features Gabe Newell, president of Valve.
Which version of @Windows is the first to include Easter eggs? Windows 3.0? Nope. What if I tell you there is an Easter egg in Windows 1.0 RTM? This is what I have recently discovered
His tweet actually shows a scrollable list of people associated with Windows 1.0 and the list includes the name, Gabe Newell. He was the founder of Valve back in the year 1996. Newell worked in Microsoft for 13 years from 1983-to 1996. He was a college dropout from Harvard University. He was also a producer of the first three versions of Windows. No wonder his name is included in the list of The Windows Team, the Easter Egg, however, is that no one ever noticed that name. It was so well hidden that it took almost 37 years to get noticed. The list includes many other names from The Windows Team.
It is certainly fun to find something hidden in software and the tweet has indeed cached the attention of netizens. His tweet has been retweeted more than 300 times (at the time of writing this article) and has been liked by more than a thousand people.

If you want to see this list of The Windows Team, you have to be lucky enough to have a running copy of Windows 1.0 and may also need to patch some binaries. As of now, you can see the list in Lucas’s tweet.
