I have never seen anybody using Clippy. That's one of the worst ideas that M$ have ever implemented. The only thing that is worse than that is probably Bob.

[citation][nom]Hothr[/nom]Don't worry guys, the movie is fictional. Clippy didn't really die.[/citation]

Eh? Unless I'm mistaken he was thrown out with the trash with the release of Office '07.

This is a lot better than the IE videos. I still don't see the point of buying Office when OpenOffice.org is free (and a lot smaller).

For the record, I kinda liked Scribble (the cat) who wasn't as stupid looking as Clippy.

At my work its because you can't open an encrypted or password protected MS word document in Openoffice, we've been using MS Office for more than 15 years and training people in Openoffice isn't worth the overhead of training current staff and most new staff that have also been using MS Office since 95, legacy word documents run the possibility of not being compatible with future Openoffice releases, etc.

People generally use what they know at home, and what the people at my work place know is MS Office.

I use Openoffice on my home PC and MS Office on my laptop. On my home PC I value hard drive space and the Openoffice fits my needs. The laptop needed to be compatible with anything my school threw at me.

Microsoft Works files are even worse.[citation][nom]Honis[/nom]People generally use what they know at home, and what the people at my work place know is MS Office.[/citation]You have co-workers who know have word processor skills exceeding WordPad and spreadsheet skills beyond using them for shopping lists? Wow! That's a rarity.[citation][nom]Honis[/nom]I use Openoffice on my home PC and MS Office on my laptop. On my home PC I value hard drive space and the Openoffice fits my needs. The laptop needed to be compatible with anything my school threw at me.[/citation]I use OOo all the time to edit Office documents and the people I'm sharing them with don't notice. Of course, it depends on the complexity. I have a customer that was fretting having to buy Office for college in order to be able to edit assignments in *.doc files from the professor. She finally asked them if there was some way she could get a cheaper version of Office and they told her to just use OOo because that was what they were using.

Training? Like MS-Office2007 works just like Office 2003/2000 and 97? OpenOffice 3 is very close to MS-O2003.

This is RIDICULOUS!!

MS ads are getting worst and worst.

I really don't understand what's the idea of making all this pointless advertisements. Remember the puke thing? And now a movie trailer that wants to be funny?
I really don't get the idea.

I liked this little trailer it was funny! And I'm glad clippy is D-E-D.. haha. But seriously I abandoned the whole Office suite eversince microsoft's bright idea with the new file formats (DOCX hahaha!) in office 2007. It's either office 2003, openoffice, or google docs for me.

Office 2010 must be sexy! It's some kind of spy jacket that will help me pickup hot chicks, right? Wait, what's Clippy? I'm confused =(
