Find the Flowers vs Minesweeper

Raymond Chen

David Vronay writes about the difficult balance that has to be maintained between people who like the classic Windows game Minesweeper and people who are (understandably) upset that Windows includes a game about landmines, trivializing a very serious issue. (Yes, the image used in the game is a water mine, not a land mine, but that’s scant consolation.)

By the way, David, you see, the idea behind “Find the Flowers” is that it’s bad to step on flowers.
