It's as much about the perquisites of developers as about PC-ness.
The peculiar tastes of some developers is tolerated as thanks for
their work or at least to help keep them happy.  Plus, there can be a
kind of competition between them in who gets to put his own stamp on
the software, without adverse imact on important software.  Nothing to
be sad about.

Otherwise, I don't see why "fortunes" and other "games" are in the
Baseline Software Distribution at all.
