As you watch the names scroll by, be sure to look for this one: Lunatic E'Sex. I couldn't believe it!

I tried this on an PPC upgraded Quadra 650, and it worked! Pretty cool...

Actually, this egg was on earlier Systems(since 7.0, I think). However, they changed the landscape, colorized it, and made it scroll up instead of to the left for OS 8. Before 8.0, it's the same as the About Box from System 1.0-1.1(and possibly other early ones).

The Lunatic E'Sex guy is under Quality. I suppose you would go crazy too if you worked for 2 years (it says Finder 8, 1995-1997 at the top, right?) on about half an OS. (That sold 1.25 million copies in 2 weeks!)
