If you Google for information about Andy Hertzfeld's program Switcher for
the Mac 512K, you'll find various anecdotes about its creation. One of them
involves a letter from Bill Gates to Andy, saying how delighted he was with
the demo version of Switcher, and how he had wasted far too much time playing
Amazing (Steve Capps' maze game, that Andy used to demo Switcher).

That doesn't surprise me too much. I've looked at Alice for the Mac with 
ResEdit, and it does all sorts of naughty things, like writing the title
screen directly to video memory, and not using the Mac's system of resources.
