    I actually agree with you. Clippy was cute the first time I saw him, but his constant presence became annoying.

    So this is actually what they call an OS-tan. And guess what, Windows 8 has 2 of them.

    Nothing Says Windows 8 Quite Like Anime Schoolgirls

    Madobe means 'by the window' in Japanese btw, so makes some sense. XD
