    What about that stupid dog in the search window, what is that for? I can't stand Windows and its insane ways.

    I'm sure the some can say the same of Mac. :rolleyes:

    It's one of Apple's smaller things, but Windows and Linux users believe the File Edit View etc stuff should be in the actual application, not the little bar (yes, I've actually heard this very same reason).

    But don't you get it? It's the propaganda part of it all. If they have cute dogs and stuff, then all the dog luvers will buy Windows because it's the "dog loving" OS. ;) Purely to appeal to certain groups. ;)

    Haha, I saw this years ago. It's supposed to be Hidden Settings in MS Office 97 (hence mention of such things as Clippit, Autorecovery, etc).

    The dog in the Windows XP search screen can be turned off or changed to something else. It is reminiscent of Microsoft BOB, which also had a dog assistant.
