Microsoft has finally closed the curtain on Clip Art

Clip Art Microsoft

The '90s will forever be remember as the decade of Clip Art, as crappy drawings of printers and shamrocks decorated middle school science homework projects, billion-dollar business transaction presentation slides and everything in between.

But alas Clip Art is dead, Microsoft has declared, taking up a new cry: "Long live King Bing!"

Users who seek to "insert online pictures" in Microsoft Office desktop apps from this day forward will be taken to a Bing portal with a copyright filter that shows only images with Creative Commons licenses.

The images are more up-to-date, Microsoft says, and no one will miss Clip Art. Right?

More blips!

We wish we'd used more Clip Art in our blips while we still could.
