Haha, god what an awful idea that was. But then I've known people who actually kind of liked it. Eek!

OpenOffice *is* too damn slow. *sigh* Is there any hope?

Looks like a re-ellaboration (ripoff?) of vigor:

Note that it is a geeker clip, it has glasses :)

The parody...!: "are sure you want to move left?" Wasn't clippy always asking for confirmation of very obvious things?

I kind of liked the cat from Office XP...the one that uses your documents as a scratching post.

I never understood the paranoia with Clippy - it takes about 2 mouse clicks to permanently turn it off !

Could you make a for-dummies guide with screenshot captor on how to do it?

It's really easy and convenient to disable the fscker permanently at install time, but if he's not gunned down there, my experience is he keeps popping up >_<

In Office XP right click on Clippy select options and uncheck "Use the Office assistant" and you'll never see him again. When you use help in future (F1) it just opens the normal help window.
