Yesterday, Microsoft and Computer History Museum has released source codes for 1980’s MS DOS 1.1 and 2.0; and Word for Windows 1.1a. Some enthusiastic developers have wasted no time to dive in to the code and one of such developer Leon Zandman found a number of jokes and brags hidden in the comments. Some of them include “Coded inline because we’re gods” and “dumb user is using a Novell Network!” Moreover, there is frequent usage of the word “hack” in comments, throughout the code. If you too want to have some fun, check out all of the comments that Zandman discovered right below.
