Just like in our world, fossils of MS Dos 2.0 and model T cars are there to test our faith, ha ha. (obviously intelligent design would not leave such fossils and have legacy code in modern OS, so software must have evolved without intelligent help)
For example the operating system Windows is so popular because only mutations such as from the blue screen of death/rebirth helped it to mutate and evolve faster rather than intelligent help. Windows is better than other OSs because it has more blue screens of rebirth so it evolves new features faster, that is also why 90% of software runs under Windows as hotbed of evolution. Unfortunately recent versions of windows "crash" less than WIndows 95, so Windows is starting to lose "market share" from the slowing of evolution.
One small example, it is obvious from some similarities between FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS that if computer network randomly mutated a few bytes at a time and favored the most fit version of OS to copy to new computers that the OS would evolve naturally to have better file system without intelligent help. (Computer viruses do this sort of thing all the time, proven in lab that a virus can mutate a little by chance. Sad that people still believe tooth fairies and hackers create new viruses)
(Your only other choice is that Almighty Gates rubbed his long white beard and made Windows in a few literal earth days from scratch which is silly)
Erfworld obviously is evolving over time though all the glitches and mutations, slowly gaining more rules (like WOW and DnD), and these fossils are from earlier versions of the game/universe. If Parson the Great manages to break the world, make another Blue Screen of Death/Rebirth, perhaps on reboot the damage done will evolve a brand new set of engineering changes to Erfworld.
Only those that accept this theory/fact are logical sane individuals. Proof: every logical sane individual accepts this theory/fact. ( PS: am I the last logical/sane individual left in the world? ^^ )
