Microsoft's Early Code Was Full Of F**ks, S**ts And Fart Jokes

Yesterday, the Computer History Museum and Microsoft released the source code for some of the earliest versions of MS-DOS and Word For Windows. And it turns out amongst all the history there's some interesting stuff.

Developer Leon Zandman has been combing through the code, and found some examples of Microsoft coders slipping jokes, f-bombs and even some Shakespeare into the actual lines of code powering some of early computing's most important programs.
