Looking back at Windows Screen Saver Easter Eggs

By Greg Shultz

In addition to hiding Easter Eggs in odd places in the operating system, Windows developers hid a lot of Easter Eggs in plain sight, so to speak. Of course I’m referring to the Screen Saver Easter Eggs.

The human brain only recognises what it has experienced in the past. The more experience - the more recognition. How many Bedouin Arabs would recognise a TREE??? I drink coffee - ALWAYS HAVE!

Great! We wasted ten minutes and spotted about 8 teapots, from tiny to huge (1/10th screen height). They seem to occur about once per 4 re-draws of the pipes.

I count 19 teapots. Some are partially obscured by the pipes.

I definitely saw 15 teapots, sometimes just the handle or spout would be visible. There very well could be four more hidden in there, so the previous poster could be correct. Fun little puzzle!
