[THG]Microsoft's Clippy is Back in Office's 'Ribbon Hero'!

He's baaaaaaaaaaaaack!
You thought he was dead, didn't you?! Well he's not! (We're talking about Clippy here, by the way.)
Clippy was that pest with good intentions that Microsoft introduced in Office 97. While it was an interesting effort to make the office suite more accessible and usable to newcomers, it was an annoyance for those who are really trying to get work done free from distractions.

This game got me hooked for while.

Oh god, that was the most annoying "feature" ever! I always disabled it after an install of office. Unless the new one is actually intelligent and has useful info, but even then, I can't see it not being annoying...

They wouldn't mind if she didn't constantly pop up and say annoying stuff. It's not so much the appearance of clippy that annoyed but what it said (as well as how often).
