The [Microsoft Office Assistant](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clippy), better known as ‘Clippy’, is a source of infinite amount of ridicule. In the beginning there were these [UserFriendly.org strips](http://www.userfriendly.org/cartoons/archives/00jan/20000108.html) where the uber hacker, Pitr, modified the [vi editor](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vi) so that it has ‘those annoying Microsoft paperclips’. Shockingly, once only existed in comic strips, somebody were crazy enough to make it a reality! The result is [Vigor](http://vigor.sourceforge.net/), it is vi complete with that annoying paperclips, in reality!
It is now several years after the birth of Vigor, but we still consider vi and clippy combination as fresh joke. Now, a [Sun](http://www.sun.com) employee who had too much time on his hands created what might happen if [vi had been made by Microsoft](http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/marigan?entry=how_the_vi_editor_would).
