My god, they're finally admitting to Bob?! Years ago when I worked as an outsource partner for Microsoft, for a short time we had access to a server in Redmond called Big Bertha which contained every single product Microsoft had produced to that point (up to '97) with the exception of one item, Bob. It was not among the products listed even though there was things like DOS 4 (for those that don't know, DOS 4 only saw the light of day for about 2 weeks before it was replaced by DOS 5).
Whenever we asked people at Microsof that worked in the OS side of things about various OSes, whenever we brought up Bob they would act coy and deny knownledge of it.
So, color me shocked that Bill is admitting to the existance of Bob now after Microsoft tried so hard to sweep Bob under the rug.
