So you're saying that the Easter egg was "removed" (or hidden behind "egg egg egg"), but
Rosetta/Inwell is still in current versions of OS X? That would be cool! Wacom is making some
pretty cost effective consumer tablets. I might just have to get one...
My recollection, is that when Inkwell was added, rumors started flying about Apple getting
ready to make a tablet Mac with at transparent Wacom tablet overlaid onto the display. That
may have been a possible direction that was abandoned with the improvement of capacitive
touch screens. I thought I'd read that Inkwell was removed from later versions of OS X.

Unless someone discovered and changed it after I left Apple (I don't have a tablet at hand to test it), even once those eggs were "removed" (by direct order), if you print "egg egg egg" (without the quotes) and it is successfully recognized as "egg egg egg", then all the old easter eggs are revived. :)
