Microsoft Help Clip Dies

Microsoft Clip Dies

Wow, the clip is finally dead in Office 2007. No more of it popping up and zipping around, trying to be cool and cute. First introduced in 1997, it managed to sustain ten years of what most people perceive to be pure annoyance – and its termination in 2007 is probably ten years too late. It does make me intrigued at how the decision to keep/discard it is made – who actually makes the call? And if they killed it now, why didn’t they kill it earlier – what were the factors that were present then that are absent now (or vice versa)?

Anyway, good riddance!
