Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
A minority of people are missing Windows helper animations... but that's not going to be enough to bring them back.
Have you heard any rumors about Microsoft making the Office Assistant available again as a download for Windows 7? We miss our doggy and pussycat!
In this excerpt from Answercast #32, I reminisce about Windows old application animations... that don't seem to be well missed.
Sorry to disappoint but Rover and the kitty (along with everybody's whipping boy, Clippy) I am absolutely convinced... are long gone. They are now things of parodies and humor sites... not to be seen again in Windows at any time soon.
Believe me, if you miss the dog and the cat, you are in a very small minority.
Most people found them incredibly annoying and as a result, (you can tell) Microsoft ended up pulling them long ago.
