God I hated that fucking thing. Probably not as much as our IT guys who had to field the complaints, though.

I remember thinking it was cool when I first saw it, cause I thought it was like an AI assistant. Turns out it was just a persistent tutorial that popped up all the time. Biggest letdown ever.

Clippy was the first stage of hell before Bob...

If you don't remember MS Bob, I feel sorry for you.

If you don't remember MS Bob, it's because you blocked it from your memory like any other traumatic experience.

Released right as the Internet was beginning to become popular, Bob offered an email client with which a user could subscribe to MCI Mail, a dial-up email account. The price was $5.00 per month to send up to 15 emails per month. Each email was limited to 5000 characters, and each additional email after the limit was reached was an additional 45 cents.

Sweet Jesus!

Don't get me wrong I do remember Microsoft Bob and also Windows ME. Windows ME was a constant fuck up machine with the BSOD happening before shutting down. I swear that operating system had an entitlement complex.

[–] Wowbagger 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Win ME sucked, there's no doubting that. They just kinda mashed some NT and 9x components together and shipped it. That said, a lot of the issues ME era machines had can also be tracked back to hardware issues that were epidemic due to capacitor plague

[–] NPCGator 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

ME was bad but 98 was way worse, the blue screen from hell OS. When 98 blue screened on Bill Gates and his engineer I LOL'd https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKy9fV_zX_o

I miss Clippy. That little guy was one of the only things Microsoft ever did almost right.

[–] MyDrunkAccount 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yeah, right up there next to Vista, 10, and everything else in recent years.

[–] ThisIsMyRealName 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Vista and 10 lack personality, something Clippy showed a semblance of. Microsoft rarely puts that in their software. Only recent exception I can think of is 10's BSOD which has a :( face on it.

"Hi there, I see that you're a pussy faggot that can't write anything without anyone's help, so Microsoft has programmed me to make you feel like you're not alone, even though you're really a fucking loser for being so helpless! Need some help writing your report, you over domesticated ball-less bitch?"

His name was Clippy. Thank God they took this away from us!

[–] Wowbagger 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

pushes glasses up nose actually, his official name was Clippit and he's gone from Office but not forgotten by those of us who like campy shit like that.

[–] MuricaPersonified 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

There was also that dumb puzzle piece, but at least it was quiet. Some versions of Windows, software bundles, etc. added other characters... everyone just turned all that shit off anyway.

It looks like you're being productive, would you like me to disable all of your add-ons?
