    It has been a long time since Microsoft updated Bob, can we expect a longhorn / .Net update?

    I have some naming suggestions:

    Microsoft Bob .Net 2005
    Bob!Net 05
    .Net Bob
    Microsoft Bob: Bob is back!
    Microsoft Bob: And Friends...
    Microsoft Bob: Clippies here too!

    They would probably follow the trend and make it "Microsoft Bob 2005" and drop the .NET

    People are always making fun of Clippy yet he was just trying to be helpful. I guess it's true, no good deed goes unpunished.

    Poor Clippy .......... That's it I'm starting a Website to partician  Mircosoft to return Clippy. After that I'm going to start an open source project to bring Clippy to Linux.

    Hello

    > Microsoft Bob: And Friends...

    This one should already be on the update road....

    It should come from the longhorn updated ActiMate Barney ??

    I've been pulling Clippy from Office versions prior to XP, just right click him, click on options, uncheck everything and "never" see him again.

    If you're considering Bob, why not add Weebl too? And market it as Team Longhorn Explosion!

    Some day I'm going to make a 30cm Clippy and put it on top of my monitor. I Like Clippy.
