I know of at least one Unix where the Microsoft copyright notice shows
up in the "true" command. This is extremely funny, considering how much
code is in there.
 I -think- it was OSF/1, but I saw that ages ago, so I'm probably
 cat `which true` to get the joke, unless, of course, you're on a GNU
system, in which case the joke becomes significantly less funny.
