Microsoft Pokes Fun at Clippy

So Microsoft can poke fun at itself.  Clippy (the much-hated Office Paperclip) is history, as  Office XP team makes abundantly clear in its Microsoft Clippy web page. Take a look at the movies and listen to the song "It Looks Like You're Writing a Letter."  It was worth a laugh.

Now, whether this actually helps sell Office XP is anybody's guess.  Clippy never really bothered me because I learned how to turn him off about 3 days after I got Office 2000, so his demise makes zero difference to me.  And Office 2000 does more than I want any office package to do, so I'm in no hurry to upgrade to Office XP.
