I actually used Clippy quite a bit. He accessed the help docs in Office and when you're doing stuff in Excel and Access and just need to pull up function parameters it was a fast and easy way to do it.

favorite office assistant ever was a Red vs Blue Sarge mod for office. It would have ignorant comments to say while you were working, and it would yell at you if you stopped for any length of time. I would love for other similar virtual assistants to make a comeback... but maybe with them actually being useful from time to time.

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.

Bit off topic, but maybe Bob could sort me an answer for it - I upgraded Win 7 to Win 8 back in November and the install was around around 21Gb and that included switching off the Hiber file and the swap file (12gig of ram, who needs it) so last night I decided to do a fresh install instead of the upgrade, to prepare for the 8.1, so after removing the Hiber file and swap file I topped out the install at 8.4Gb - I wonder if Bob could advise me why I have such a small OS footprint?

Bill must really, really not like Win 8 being compared to New Coke. Or, he is just reminding us what happens when Microsoft tries to innovate.
