Windows "Windows XP became the most effective Microsoft Bob deployment tool ever developed. And if you go way back into your closet, dig out your copy of Windows XP, and can somehow channel the right spirits to mash your hands on the keyboard in exactly the right way, then out of your encryption program will come a copy of Microsoft Bob."

...these kinds of stories, the interesting trivia that makes the OS industry what it is today. I can't remember peoples phone numbers, but I can remember things like this, go figure...

I wonder if anyone will bother to work out what the encryption key was for Bob. Only 30Mb too, wow...

I think Bob is a better name than Utopia by the way, only because the app is defn. more like a Bob (no offence to any Roberts out there) - LOL
