Microsoft "Mimesweeper"

Microsoft UX dude Dave Vronay has a great sense of humor about his company’s occasional struggles to make Windows elegant and usable. In his mock-apologetic list of features that didn’t make the cut for Vista, he mentions "Mimesweeper," a more politically sensitive version of the venerable Minesweeper game. "Just like wandering around Paris, the goal is to figure out where all of the mimes are without actually encountering one."  Sadly, he reports, the game came to naught, as did the, ah, highly discoverable "Safe Delete" feature.  [Via]  [For more tech parody see previous.]
