Quote from: "Aurora"Didn't know that she was one of OS/360-tan's older sisters, but I should have guessed, with the similar names and being made by IBM... Personality-wise, she was rather stuck-up, but that's because she was very shy and unsure of herself. Apparently, she also had some influence on CP/CMS as well.
Quote from: "Bella"About old OS-tans: deceased v. living, I think that storyline elements should play a role in the choice. Granted, SAGE may not be a working computer system, but SAGE-tan has value as a living character. We can bend the rules a bit. Likewise, Xenix and Apple I may still live on in emulated forms, but there's not a great deal of value in the characters being alive in this day and age-- they serve more purpose being dead, as blunt as that might sound.
Quote from: "Bella"As for TSS/360-tan: TSS/360 is separate enough from the other IBM-tans to warrant a separate design. Aurora-sama brought up this point before, but to expand a bit:-TSS/360 was IBM's stab at making a "Multics-scale" system. Not that it was Multics-like per se, but they wanted it to be competition-TSS/360 suffered from performance problems (Second System Syndrome perhaps?) and became a money pit for IBM-Much to the chagrin of its small userbase, IBM pulled the plug on the project; TSS/360 support lasted for a short time before the system was finally allowed to die.
QuoteLooking at TSS-tan is like looking at how Multics could have ended up.
Quote from: BellaQuoteHmmm, maybe GECOS-tan would consider DOS/360-tan to be her mother? (sorta like VOS-tan and Multics-sama)?hrm, isn't unix involved in this as well? i'd love to see a grandmother-mother-child drawing. ^^
