Quote taken from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft ... and_legacy
Bob was one of Microsoft's more visible product failures. Despite being discontinued before Windows 95 was released, Microsoft Bob continued to be severely criticized in reviews and popular media.

Bob received the 7th place in PC World magazine's list of the 25 worst tech products of all time, number one worst product of the decade by CNET.com, and a spot in a list of the 50 worst inventions published by Time magazine, who called Bob "overly cutesy" and an "operating system designed around Clippy". Microsoft's Steve Ballmer mentioned Bob as an example of a situation in which "we decided that we have not succeeded and let's stop".
Enough said. :lol:
