Mac OS X Easter Egg - Here's to the Crazy Ones

Open Finder.

Go to Applications.

Look for TextEdit.

Blow up the icon (use QuickLook if necessary)

You'll see the following words written on a piece of paper:

Dear Kate,

Here's to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The troublemakers. The round
pegs in the square holes - the
ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules and
they have no respect for
the status quo. You can praise
them, disagree with them,
quote them, disbelieve them,
glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing that you
can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.

Take care,
John Appleseed


John Appleseed is always the sample name used to demonstrate mac apps such as address book or on the iphone.

The letter is of the words from an apple ad that premiered in 1997
