Clippy? Is clippy going to make a return? I would seem so.
I love this idea. I was (apparently) one of the few people that liked the Office Assistants (although Clippy wasn’t the best). I thought they did an excellent job of ‘humanising’ what is a fairly bland set of software products (sorry Office Dev team – it does look nice, but only as cool as a productivity suite can be).
It got me thinking though about the whole concept, and while I don’t know what the team is planning, and I can see a nightmare for system admins, Clippy as a portal to social networking for Office users would be a killer. Clippy delivering Twitter and Facebook messages? Clippy playing music files? Either way, I’m thinking that we are moving into a new phase of UI development where things start getting sexy and fun again. Windows 7 is certainly an advance on that front already.
I’ll blog more as soon as I can lay my hands on a beta of Office 2010.
