I don't know HOW far it spread, anyway, I got it on March 24th from a
co-worker, who got it from another co-worker, but he doesn't remember
anymore from whom.
Its title line says: Pie Bill Gates, V1.59, Windows Version, Created by
"The Imposter!"
It's called Piegates.exe and 505792 bytes long (so much for checking).

By the way, there IS a similar VCS cartridge, Holey Moley (C) 1983 by
Atari. In it, you try to shoot
moles. You could easily make a hack of it changing the mole image to
Bill Gates' face :-)

BTW, each of the five games in the Bally Journey Arcade game would
probably have been good
for a VCS 4k game :-)!

With love and pies,
