hear, hear.

While how often their 'agent' (Clippy, etc.) came up was really annoying...the premise was a pretty good one. And in fact, you can find their agent - Microsoft Bob - in recent versions of Windows too - just do a search for a file, computer, or anything else in Windows Explorer.

The problem was not Clippy or what Clippy did...just how intrusive Clippy and the other agents were in Office. They really should have tried to find a better balance.
