Looking back at Windows Screen Saver Easter Eggs

Not Evil

In Windows NT 4.0, the developers also hid their names in the 3D Text screen saver Easter Egg.

To see this Easter Egg, you begin by accessing the Screen Saver tab in the Display Properties dialog box. You then select the 3D Text from the Screen Saver drop down list and then click the Settings button. When you see the 3D Text Setup dialog box, you type not evil in the Text box. You can change any of the other settings as you wish.
