Just a garden variety Easter Egg giving credit to the developers. Excel 5
and 7 have Easter Eggs as well. I doubt they add that much (extra) bloat.

This is interesting. If you ever wonder why we keep having to buy new,
computers every few years... if you ever wonder why Microsoft applications
to become slower and fatter with each new release?
Well, apparently Bill's engineers have taken to flights of fancy!!! Below
you'll find how to access a little flight simulator that was inexplicably
by programmers deep inside Excel 97.
1. In Excel 97, open a new blank work sheet.
2. Press F5 and type X97:L97 in the "Reference" box, then click OK.
3. Now hit your tab key once (you should end up in cell M97).
4. 4) Press "Ctrl" and "Shift" while clicking once on the "chart wizard"
(the one at the top with the blue-yellow-red bar chart). AND...
Welcome aboard! After a few moments you should be flying. Steer with the
accel and decel with the left and right mouse buttons respectively, and look
the monoliths with the programmer credits. You can exit the screen by
Ctrl+Shift+Esc. Enjoy the flight....
