What are Easter Eggs?

http://live.pirillo.com/ – Easter Eggs can be nice chocolate goodies, but in the world of tech Eater Eggs are little surprises found inside software. Over time the use of Easter Eggs has diminished in the software world, but video games and DVDs have resurrected the lost-art of Easter Eggs.

What can you find in Easter Eggs? Well, it all depends on what the developers did! If it was a DVD you may find extra special features, hidden interviews, or special images. In a video game you may find a tribute to the developers' favorite games or hidden music tracks.

If you want to find Easter Eggs in your software, check out The Easter Egg Archive!
