Hi. My name is Bob. Not because that's my name but everyone on the internet is Bob. Even women. So my name today is Bob.
Why? Because it's 0113 in the morning, I've no work today to do and don't really care about having too much to drink.
No honestly I wanted to take a moment to celebrate the anniversary of the first line of code in Microsoft Bob.
Bob was a failure. A critical failure. A commercial failure.
Microsoft Bob was not enlargement pill Bob. He only smiled to cover his anguish.
So then; why celebrate a not just failed overlay but one that is loathed?!?
Because regardless of what anyone wants to admit in the open source community Bob was the failed first step at the limited 10 foot interface.
For windows users you can thank Bob for windows Plus whose many components make windows 10 bareable despite it's flaws.
Apple? Without Bob, combined with Next, there wouldn't have been a 9 and as such no X Apple fans so love. Linux? Bob gave us Ultra 64. Ultimate Linux. Xbmc. And PlayStation POSIX.
No android without Bob. No iOS without Bob.

So while everyone hates on Bob, I say happy fertilisation day to you. And thanks for failing. Without you the world would be a very different place.


This public act of stupidity was supplied by lostinlodos who's name is not Bob but who actually thought Bob was interesting and recognised Bob as a VITAL member of software evolution! All hail bob. End public service announcement.

It was in a top 10 failures list on Sunday so I thought I'd go the opposite route and celebrate it's first day in existence.
