Clippy is Alive 

Mitch Denny was messing around with a Technical Preview of Visual Studio .NET 2005 (Whidbey) and found out that Clippy calls "developer tools" home... Yes, that's right, apparently that annoying "help" system from Office is not dead, and has infected VS.NET. Chris Sell's sort of confirms it here. I say we need to start a petition against Clippy with Microsoft. Are you honestly telling me that Clippy was more important to get into the product than Edit and Continue for C#???

Update: Ok... It's Monday... and yes I bit down on this one good. But what does that say about Microsoft that I honestly thought they'd bloat VS.NET with this particular feature?
