The life and death of Microsoft Bob is mostly a mystery. A few facts from my recollection of the media reports:
Bob was born in Redmond Washington. He suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder and was known to experience panic attacks around punched-hole cards, Fortran, magnets, IBM keyboards, paperclips, Apples, and anything POSIX.
Bob was found dead in his one-bedroom 3.5" high-density floppy diskette just two days after the announcement of a new "improved" Office Assistant. The official cause of death was suicide, but some suspected murder. Unfortunately, his home was reformatted the week following his death, making it impossible to conduct a thorough investigation. Conspiracy?
A paperclip was found beside his home at the time of his reported death. It had been magnetized.
The night preceding his death, neighbors overheard Bob arguing about the layout of the new TPS report template for Office.
Bob's funeral was closed-source. No one attended.
