This app can break

Was intrigued with this:

Open up Notepad, and type in "this app can break", without the quotation marks. Save it somewhere. Then open it. You'll find out, in a non-destructive way, that yes indeed, Notepad can break.

Notepad

This is presumably an easter egg/Micro$haft techie humour.

I read about that today, too and did exactly the same thing. I was hoping for some kind of game to appear, or maybe a *nix shell to appear.

or TextEdit to appear instead....

Tried in in Windows 7, but it doesn't show any odd behavior

I'm gutted!
