Microsoft Bob, codename 'Utopia', was a project in which Rover the dog introduced Microsoft OS to new users through the metaphor of a house. Come explore the wondrous world of interfaces old and new at @ImpaktFestival 30-10 til 03-11 in Utrecht!

@air_pump yes. Besides Rover the dog, you could also choose a streetwise rat. The project only truly disappeared in 2007 perhaps because it was managed by Gates' wife.
