Windows "Windows XP was the last client version of Windows to include the Pinball game that had been part of Windows since Windows 95. There is apparently speculation that this was done for legal reasons. No, that's not why." I love these stories.

If you read the secondary link, Raymond actually fixed it to work nicely on the NT WIN32 strand. It otherwise consumed 100% of the processor and had a ~1000FPS refresh rate!

My guess is that a pinball game wasn't an especially hight priority.
