Microsoft Bob

Microsoft Bob: “You may have heard jokes about some old failed Microsoft product called ‘Bob’ or seen that big yellow smily face wearing nerdy glasses, and wondered ‘what the heck was that all about?’.

Well, in early 1995 Microsoft released a software program called ‘Bob’ designed to replace the desktop of Windows 3.1 and 95 with an interface designed mainly for novice users.

Microsoft held a big advertising campaign and loaded up stores with copies of Bob expecting huge sales. It totally flopped.”
