Anyone remember "Microsoft Bob?"

Unfortunately, some of us older geeks remember it like a bad dream. It was Microsoft’s most spectacular failure and is still remembered as one of the worst “applications” ever produced for the PC/Windows. IMNSHO, it ranks up there with IBM’s Top View.

Here’s a posting by John Sheesley on TechRepublic that has tons of screenshots. If you remember Bob, take a couple of valiums first. If you don’t remember, enjoy and be close to the bathroom because you just might pee in your pants… :-)
