As part of #ThrowbackThursday, a popular Internet trend on social media, Microsoft has released a series of wallpapers in which the company reimagines some of the elements of Windows OS. Users use this hashtag to accompany the pictures from different times of their lives.

The first image is dedicated to Clippy, one of the most popular virtual assistants that was first in Microsoft Office 97. However, the company later abandoned it because users found it too intrusive, and Clippy became an occasion for various kinds of parodies and jokes.
