Microsoft has announced that it will be getting rid of the last trace of clip art in its Office products, directing users in need of imagery toward toward Bing Image Search.
Company removes clip arts from its Office products
Microsoft has announced that it will be removing clip arts from all its Office products.
The reason is quite simple: most people simply go online to get their images anyway, so there's no need for the clip arts.
Bing images won't be vector art (which means they can't be resized), but users will at leaset have a whole lot more options.
The Bing Image Search built into Office is essentially the same one that is built into its standard search engine, just with Creative Commons filters switched on by default to allow for commercial use.
Sadly, this is another pillar of yesteryears that the next generation geeks will not experience, just like floppy disks or burning CDs...
Technological evolution is definitely here to stay.
