With over 100 replies, we could have already written a course outline,
introduction, and some notes about events and RAD programming, maybe also
the observer pattern?

There may be a misunderstanding:
I did not ask whether the *purpose* of a program is entertainment
but whether *programming* it has to be entertainment?
The aim of programming should be to get a program running
(as the programmer wants it) not to spend time with
juggling gaudy pictures, icons and videos.

In the end, it is somehow "entertaining" if a program works
but this requires knowledge about how the programming language works.
Ignoring all facts will never lead to a satisfying programming experience.
