You can replace the "GodMode" part with anything and it will still work. Doesn't seem like an Easter egg to me.

It isn't really its just a dev feature that wasn't well known before the last couple days.

Actually, Here's an article from CNET on some more of these "undocumented" features... Godmode works on Vista as well. I haven't tried the rest of them yet:

I just tried it on a Vista 32-Bit laptop and windows explorer is now killing itself. Works fine on my 7 machines though, I've heard about it breaking quite a few vista machines from what I've googled.
