Microsoft April Fools Joke #3: 2001 Drive

3

A number of teams within Microsoft are participating in some April Fools fun.  We have seen the comeback of Clippy from the Office team and the Bing team’s creation of wearable devices for pets.  The OneDrive team has set up a website of what OneDrive may have looked like in 2001.  The site is complete with animated gifs, file sizes in bytes, comic sans, a hit counter, a floating banner and a logo that says “best viewed in internet explorer.”
