  Bill Gates says Microsoft Bob will make a comeback
Time: 09:19 EST/14:19 GMT | News Source: CNET | Posted By: Robert Stein

Bill Gates thinks that Microsoft Bob, or at least the concept, will come back to life as intelligent personal agents become part of everyday computing. Microsoft Bob, introduced by Gates at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 1995, provided a virtual house with rooms and doors and cartoon character assistants to help users navigate Windows and perform tasks with Microsoft applications. For example, users could log in by clicking on a door knocker or launch the calendar application by clicking on a calendar hanging on a wall. (Read Harry McCracken's fine history of Microsoft Bob.)

It would be hilarious if the Start screen was replaced by a Microsoft Bob v8.1 screen. /s

I guess Microslurp didn't learn the first time that Microsoft Bob was a huge blunder and embarrassment.
