According to Brooks, Easter eggs are placed in an encrypted state at the end of a smiley bitmap file in the operating system. At the time of almost 1985 there were no tools that could uncover this kind of additional data.

In fact, the content of Easter eggs is nothing special. It just includes a dialog box that says The Windows Teams Congratulations! with a list of developers involved in the build of Windows 1.0. Then Brooks also found similar Easter eggs on Windows 2.0.

In this list there is the appearance of a very notable character, Gabe Newell. Gabe Newell is currently the founder and president of Valve game company. He worked at Microsoft from 1983 to 1996, then quit to found Valve.
