The 37-year “secret” of Windows 1.0 has just been revealed and it contains a familiar name
Windows 1.0 released in November 1985, so far almost 37 years old, but it turns out that it still contains a “secret” that has only been discovered until now.
A user named Lucas Brooks recently shared a hidden “easter egg” in Windows 1.0. This Easter egg is simply a listing of the development team that created Windows 1.0. The listing reads “Congratulations!” and among the developer’s names, one is particularly familiar: “Gabe Newell”.
Easter eggs in Windows 1.0
You are not mistaken, that is the name of the person who is leading Valve, the company behind the famous Steam platform. One thing few people know about Newell is that in his early days, he worked at Microsoft on some early versions of Windows. His relationship with Microsoft so far has not ended. Microsoft and Valve have worked together to enhance the Steam Deck experience for gamers.
According to Brooks, the hidden list is placed in encrypted form at the end of the smiley bitmap file that comes with the operating system. In 1985, there really weren’t any tools that could uncover this kind of data.
