Hopefully it is a joke, but according to TheServerSide.net, Clippy (from Office) is going to be apart of VS2005. HOPEFULLY if it is true, that it won't be enabled by default!

Hmmm...that looks like Clippy's evil twin.

If Clippy returns in demonic form, it might not be so bad. At least you could say to people that hate him: "Of course he's evil; he's a demon. What did you expect?"

Then again, there are those that maintain that the original Clippy was the spawn of Satan.

That would be freakin' hillarious! I wonder how they'd position it to actually provide some sort of benefit. I don't know of any techie who actually uses any of the Office helpers, so I don't see why they would for VS05. I kind of doubt that this will happen, but we'll see...

Didn't MS go all-out and have a formal retirement/funeral for this much-maligned icon? (I've always preferred the puppy or the cat in Office myself).
