How did the legendary solitaire for Windows?

On Friday, April 14, Great Big Story published an interview with Wes cherry, who created the famous solitaire (not in the sense of solitaire, but in terms of its program embodiment for the operating system), as an Intern in the company.

"actually, solitaire for Windows was created out of boredom. Since then there was few games for the computer, we decided to create it," he said.

In 1998, cherry interned at Microsoft, and the game has been developed. He says he did it to make it more fun to work with, but when the popularity of personal computers went up, the company came up with the legend: "Klondike" was created to teach people how to use the mouse. The Microsoft founder bill gates expressed negative about the game in 1990, because to win it wasn't easy.

It Turned out that back in 1990 at the workplace in the office to play was impossible, and "solitaire" became popular among office workers. Therefore, it introduced a special button Boss Key which, when pressed, the game is hiding in the system tray.

Cherry says he was not paid for "Scarf" not a penny, but would be very rich if every copy of the game earned him at least a penny. Now he is engaged in the production of cider.

The Legend that games like "Minesweeper", "Worm", "Scarves" and "Free cell" was developed to teach people how to use the capabilities of the OS, became known in August 2015.
