None of the companies I've worked for have received customer complaints
about the bloat due to easter eggs. Due to feature creep and other kinds
of unnecessary software obesity, yes, but not due to any easter eggs.

Remember, to quote PC Magazine's review of Office 2000:

>The new Premium Edition includes no fewer than ten primary applications
>and consumes as much as 526MB of hard disk space.

And that's with or without any easter eggs it might contain.

Perspective is everything.
