BOB Rises From The Grave

By on November 4, 2004

Ben Armstrong in Microsoft’s Virtual PC Group is using his power for nefarious purposes: Resurrecting Microsoft Bob.

I immediately set about trying every operating system I could find under Virtual PC. However – I was not able to get my hands on a copy of Microsoft BOB until the Connectix technology was acquired by Microsoft. One of the first things I did as a new Microsoft employee was to search the file archives – find a copy of BOB – install it under Virtual PC and go ‘Yes! It works!’

Interesting side note from Wikipedia: Melinda French, who managed the Bob project for MS, is now known as Melinda Gates.
