MS-DOS Easter Egg - Time Stamp

Simply check the time stamp on all files included in MS-DOS 6.22. They are all 6:22a[m]! For the technically challenged, thats c:\>dir dos\*.* in dos or ^Start, Run, 'c:\dos', ^View, Details, then check the column Modified. Not a rolling around on the floor kind of thing, but kind of neat.

This really isn't an egg, but just a handy way of identifying the version any given DOS file came from. DOS isn't the only place where you'll find it; a lot of older programs flagged their exes' version numbers this way -- I did it myself on a program I developed and maintained for my employer ten or so years ago.
