 As of late I like XP Home-kun (there seems to be a bit of variation on his design)~ <3 Though there aren't that many pics ^___^ But I change my opinion alot... I also like 95tan, and NTtan (inu-T version)... they're all so awesome x3

 We've got an awesome variation of OS-tan favourites amongst those who replied.

I also want to add We-tan to my list of favs o.o So We-tan and Homeo-kun come first, though I'm not devoted exclusively to them.

 I like ME-tan.

The actual OS has its own problems (though I've had far more with 98), but it's a nice gobetween asfar as Windows 98 and Windows XP Home.

As far as the actual OS-Tans go, though, I like ME just because. She's cute, ditzy and sweet; though I think I may be just partial because I have old girlfriends who remind me of ME-Tan.

If I'm going for brains though, I'd have to choose 2K-Tan; reminds me of a friend of mine, who I also love for her...brains.

 I like cube-tan (Nintendo Gamecube) the most, but I've only seen one image of her... -.-

Yeah, I know she's not technically an OS-tan... but still.  As far as operating systems go, I like 2000-tan the most, and my actual OS is 2000.

 I voted for the dependable woman Win2k myself. She was the first OS-tan I noticed and loved, and even if I've recently also got to adore WinXP and WinME, it's still ms. 2000 who I consider the best. ^_^

That intellectual look just cannot be matched, even if I do have a thing for longer hair and maids as well. *cough*

 My favorite "*-tan" would be a contest between Me-tan and Firefox-ko, but I chose Firefox-ko because I use Mozilla Firefox passionately. Me-tan, while a good character in her own right, represents an OS that.... Never mind, I digress.

Megane is short for meganekko, isn't it? I never heard it abbreviated.
Title: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: L33t 4g3nt on June 05, 2005, 02:44:27 AM
 I don't know...All I know is that "megane" means or implies glasses. I remember in some animes a character might be nicknamed "Megane" whis would be the same as the slang english nickname "Specs."
Title: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Pitkin on June 05, 2005, 05:11:12 AM
 Actually, megane is not short for meganekko. Megane simply means "glasses", just like L33t 4g3nt already mentioned, and meganekko only adds the familiar -ko suffix into it, making it "a girl who wears glasses" (edit: or "female four-eyes" or "glasses-girl"). So, people who are into meganes tend to love meganekkos. ^_^

just strait DOS tan, usually seen with a keyboard, and always hiding in the background, because well, dos hides in the background.

and finaly, the DOS cat, the one I was talking about. Im surprized you hadnt seen it, Its the way I see DOS the most often.  Thats the best and most common 3.1 (shes cute XD)  and she is always seen with the DOS cat.  makes sence. o.o

My vote goes to Linux-tan as far as the standard OS-Tan line-up is concerned.  Among the Linux distros, however, her design really isn't my favorite (perhaps due to the low exposure).  In that case, my hat has to go off to Juzo-kun's veeeeeeeeutiful rendition of Fedora-tan.  ^__^

I think it's her "Knoppix-tan", but yes definitely, her art is fantastic.  Not just the artistry, but just the fact that she managed to produce not one or two, but TEN new original OS-tans in very good quality never ceases to amaze me.  (And that's not counting her rendition of GNU/Linux and the second Slackerware pic.)

Even though another cute-looking Knoppix-tan appeared on Waka recently and it follows the Anime-style more closely, I'm still partial to Juzo-kun's version.  If I ever incorporated Knoppix-tan in any of my future drawings, I'd have to stick with 90% Juzo-kun, 5% perhaps some borrowing of version 2's spear and bunny ears, and the remainder my own embellishment.  

One can dream, anyway....  ^__^'

She actually did the right thing. Producing more rare os-tans can really help the movement globally...

There was a huge (and at times nasty) discussion about her art and the "-kun" thing here:

http://www.wakachan.org/os/res/19554.html

And she definitely did the right thing, but it risks being a vain effort unless people help contribute towards establishing a fanbase.  Without sufficient exposure, this version could very well be considered the "first" Knoppix-tan:

http://www.wakachan.org/os/src/1151889288799.jpg

Not that it's a bad rendition (it's quite nice actually), but it's always good to recognize prior efforts.  

(For that matter, maybe there was a prior Knoppix-tan before Juzo-kun's?  There are definitely other versions of Redhat, Fedora and SUSE out there, although not sure of their age...)

There are some few there that haven't got their "rare" ones exposed, not to mention the other "-tans" and "-kuns who are "not in the main cast". But what Juzu-kun did really helped. For me, it doesn't matter if the thing is not that popular. What you like is what you like. If you feel those things then go represent it, I'm sure that's what her purpose is.

Who knows those rare ones have some comic strips although it's either not exposed (what you said) or the other's just can't accept it.

Currently working on a PalmOS-tan picture and already have a PC-DOS-tan picture scheduled right after, but I'm now determined to produce a RedHat-tan / Fedora-tan combo right after that.  I'll try to make as a nod to the Linux community as well as to Juzo-kun's designs.

But anyway, don't want to tangent too far off the original topic.....

For me, I can't decide between 95-tan and Firefox-ko. I like 95-tan because of her split personality between warrior and "average" woman. Also, my first computer ran Windows 95. Firefox-ko, because Firefox is my favorite browser and the character design is the best of all the OS-tans.

Yo, NewYinzer!

Actually, that is in fact Juzo-kun's design, so you now know which design I'll be using for RedHat Linux.  I usually prefer to propagate other people's designs other than my own -- aside from an issue of convenience, it helps expand recognition for the design efforts of others, and paves the way for new canon characters.  ^.^

My take on RedHat-tan?  I'll probably keep her paired with Fedora-tan, since the two form something of a Linux "hit squad" in my mind (probably because of how they're dressed).  I'll likely give it a try in my 4th pic, when both Fedora and RedHat have a little "chat" with certain older members of the Windows Family.  I'll try to keep as much of Juzo-kun's designs as possible, but I'm also interested in blending in some design elements from other RedHat/Fedora renditions I've seen elsewhere (especially in the Gallery).

Speaking of weird fantasies and shady boards, what exactly would be considered our "competition" [as an English-language OS-tan forum/message board]?  I may act like a petulent pig, but the truth is that I'm still relatively new and unversed in the ways of the OS-tan grapevine.  

The only other such site that I've seen frequented regularly is Wakachan, and even then it's not enitrely devoted to OS-tans.  (Probably the reason I'm so hesitant to post there.)  -__-'

FEAR!!! FEAR, Cpt Brenden!!!! The fact that they have 4 random boards (a la /b/) should be more than enough to scare anyone!!!

...
AFAIK, there are no Japanese forums for OS-tans. There are Imageboards, like the one from Nijiura, and some others (I think there was a hentai one, and I remember seeing an small one once). Aside, there is a 2chan "Online Characters" board: http://img.2chan.net/10/futaba.htm , (similar to Wakachan, not only OS-tans). And on top of that, there are the /b/'s boards, the place that gives birth to most OS-tan material ("urban mith", never tried to search in it...its worst than the /b/ on 4chan). As you see, there aren't any known "registered members" forums aside this (I think there were 2 more, but in English, and smaller than this xP, I think)

Title: I've only a few brief remarks....
Post by: MisterCat on September 08, 2006, 06:03:15 PM
Let me say right away that my favorite operating-system girl is XP-tan, the Professional version.  Having said that, I hasten to add it's my view all the OS Girls are equal in the sight of the Cosmos.  (How am I doing so far?)

Running a distant second to XP-tan would be two girls who aren't affiliated with operating systems per se:  Firefox-ko and Thunderbird-ko.  They're a team, those two, so I don't want to separate them!

XP-tan reminds me of my best friend, though at an earlier age.  You see, I reserve the right to create my own imaginary world for fictional characters; but I respect the various personalities as they've been created by others, unless I find certain traits unflattering ââ,¬â€ in which case I reject them.

For example, this whole business about XP-tan being a gourmand doesn't fit my concept of her; hence, I reject it.  Cast me into the Eternal Fires of OS-tan Hell if you will, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

;012

In my little world of make-believe, XP-tan is an Alpha chick who thus incurs the dislike of other young females.  It's that way in real life:  The popular gal with the great body is roundly scorned by other gals, those whose positive attributes they themselves fail to value.

[Harangue ends.  Questions commence.]

Here's what gets me about Japanese art, as it pertains to anime/games/manga characters and possibly by extension to the OS Girls: How come all the gals have flat butts?  Why are their legs too long?  What's with the pointy chins?  Why the fixation with the combination of laughably-huge breasts, skinny legs and matchstick arms?  How can they breathe or eat with such tiny mouths?

I'm very glad to see the OS Girls aren't necessarily afflicted by these artistic clichés; and that's one reason I like them!  If it were up to Japanese artists the OS Girls would all have mouthless hatchet faces, blimp-like breasts, no butts and dowels for arms and legs.  Three cheers for Occidental fan art!

Hmm...indeed. Yes, anime girls have such small butts and excessively large breasts as a result of what I call the "Two Sheds" paradox. You see, it all depends on the artist. Only two characteristics of the female form can be captured at any time. Quite often it is the breasts, other times it is the buttocks or the legs.

Post by: MisterCat on September 08, 2006, 08:00:40 PM
Thanks for the input, NewYinzer.  I guess in Japan butts, thighs and legs just aren't considered sexy ââ,¬â€ or something.  Either that, or they just haven't figured out how to draw them.  They're not really keen on muscle definition, either.  But breasts, wow!  Big, big, bigger than big!

o_o

I can see some Japanese guys now, staring at a rendering of some female anime character:  "Flat butt!  Ooh!  Shapeless legs!  Ahh!"  All right, yes, I'm obviously exaggerating (but not by much).  I noticed from :::: ALIEN1452.COM:::: (http://www.alien1452.com/) that Korean artists have a much better handle on human anatomy than do their Japanese counterparts.

Anyway, that's all a digression from the OS Girls.  The OS-tans I've seen are, in the main, nicely drawn; and for that, I'm thankful!

Well, I have my own explanation to offer in a little bit.  ^__^
But in the meantime, I figured it'd be worthwhile to note that there are exceptions to the rule.  Certainly the Studio Ghibli stuff makes more of an effort to produce slightly-more-realistic female anatomy, not counting all the independent artists who think as you do and thus try to follow the occidental approach.

Though interestingly-enough, they seem to want that without inheriting the larger american height (or more appropriately, Dutch/Swedish/Montenegran, etc.....  Ã,¬__Ã,¬).
You can't hope for better extremeties without growing the rest of you along with it.  It just doesn't work that way....  -v-

QuoteEither way, every culture likes what it likes. Large breasts are fine, but once you go beyond 38GG, things become somewhat...er...comical.

Had Anime originated from Truk island, Micronesia instead, the breasts wouldn't be the only thing that'd be large.  ^^;

==================

Okay, time for C-Chan's Official Cost-Benefit Analysis!  ^v^

*plays music from on-hold conference call*

To put it bluntly, Japanese Animation is meant to be cheap and efficient.  You want to be able to churn out full-length series quickly and on a budget (relative to, say, live-action tv shows/movies).  Fortunately for the Japanese producers, the Japanese themselves were never traditionally very demanding about the quality of the artwork itself (although of course, beautiful animation still remained much-appreciated eye candy).  In contrast, at least before the onset of full-CG animation, parents in the US would raise hill if Disney ever subjected their precious children to 15 frame-per-second crap.

So yes, it's a little bit of regional morphology (e.g., flat butts, short heights, low obesity), a little bit of taste (e.g., balloon cleavage on 70% of all female characters, vast prevalance of "Sailor Moon"-style stilts-for-legs) and a dab of culture (pointy chins based off the "shi" kana, which was probably predates 20th century work).

But the oversimplification of these features, plus the lack of muscle definition, matchstick extremeties and large eyes, is purely cost-driven.  It's easier to animate and more efficient to get your point across; in the case of the eyes, emotions become indisputably clear, wheras in the case of breasts, highlighting them in such a way increases their marketability to target audiences.  I don't recall that tiny mouths were overly-prevalent in early Anime, but the moment it became apparent that "cute" female characters were hot sellers, BEHOLD...!

Now nearly every female character in contemporary Anime has a tiny mouth, tiny nose, memorable eyes, a charismatic demeanor (= not a smartass), and cute legs-arms-breasts-hands-feet-ass-etc....

And obviously it works if it's hooked so many fans around the world.  
(Just ask the Captain what he wants for his birthday.... -v-)

More importantly, however, Anime is ultimately successful because it views the art portion as a means to the end, and not the other way around.  Cheap animation is used to ultimately convey a tantalizing story and rich characters (well, for the most part,... I admit that, just like with regular movies, there's an awful lot of crappy titles floating around).  And it's precisely because the artwork is so efficient, there are enough resources left over to embellish the presentation of said artwork.  Full-motion battle frames and shading/shadowing effects are drawn with equal simplicity, but applied in such a way that it often adds stunning, dramatic and at times breath-taking detail to a scene.

To use an old stereotype, the drawing style has a particular "zen" quality to it: simple, but elegant in its simplicity.

Oh, and I should note that manga often follows this same paradign as well, since it's often a single artist that draws the whole thing himself/herself.  Given the size of the task, and the suffocating competition within the Japanese market, corners must be cut somehow....
Or you get yourself a staff......  

Or, if need be,... you cheat....^__^

that was really long and I don't think i read through it thoroughly, but I'll go out on a limb here, and agree with C-Chan.

They don't all look like that.  Many Japanese artists will base their drawings on what they see.  Namely, Japanese people and American people.  Cuz you the Japanese love American culture.  Why else do they love baseball? And many artists have their own style, too. Some like to go realistic, others cute, others exaggerated sexy. Most are somewhere in between.

Just gotta look for em.

I try to go for more realistic proportions meself.  But Jeff needs to learn how to draw real people first. Even though anime is a simplified form of the human body, a good understanding of the real human body is almost required for the amazing anime artist.

Thank you very much, C-Chan, for your clear and witty explanation of what's what anatomy-wise in the anime genre!  I forgot to mention the impossible cranial hair some characters have, but that oddity doesn't bother me anywhere near as much as the ridiculous anatomy.

Again, that's one of the big reasons I like the OS Girls:  They tend to look like human beings ââ,¬â€ very nice-looking humans, to be sure, in most cases.  So, artists of OS-tans, keep up the good work!

Your explanation regarding the ways in which budgetary restrictions result in renderings which are one small step away from matchstick people is very interesting.  Let's just hope those corporate bosses don't take this trend to its logical conclusion (see "matchstick people" above).  Two huge eyes on some talking stilts?  Help!

I appreciate your taking time to acquaint me with the lay of the land, art-wise!  I'll continue to cringe at what the Flat Butt School of Art produces, but at least now I know it's simply a money-making gimmick.  Perhaps some parody art of the above-mentioned school is in order:  "A Day In the Life of a Flat-Butt Artist:  How I was taught to unlearn the concept of shape."

Funny you should mention it....
Compare early 90's enemy with most of the contemporary stuff, and you'll note that there has generally been a signficant reduction in character detail.  However, since there is still a demand for at least baseline-quality animation, the simpler style is compensated with additional eye-candy (rasor-sharp detail, vibrant color, computer-assisted special effects, beautiful music, more dramatic story-telling, etc.).  In this case, I'd recommend comparinig 'Ah! My Goddess' the original OVA with 'Ah! My Goddess' the new TV series.  -v-

In contrast, American animation studios (and for that matter, Canadian ones) are a lost cause.  Budget restrictions, coupled with the child-centric approach, ultimately leads to the travesties that kids are made to watch these days.  In most cases, literally two huge eyes on some talking stilts....  Ã,¬__Ã,¬

Gone are the days of 80's cartoons and Gargoyles, perhaps never to return for a very long time...... -___-

*sighs*

Pixar/Brad Bird:  CG animation, the new "thing" that's "in".  -v-'
Not bad in itself if done right, but certainly displaced traditional 2D animation here.

Matt Groening: cheaply drawn also, but it's a comedy so it compliments it.  Unfortunately it could still classify as an an adult cartoon, so kids still won't necessarily be exposed to it.

Parker/Stone: even MORE cheaply done, but again compliments the comedy and helps their series go on endlessly.  (Plus their last movie was with CG and puppets.)  Even LESS for kids.

Family Guy:  same reasons above.  Besides I kinda like this one.  Never did say we couldn't do comedy (even if it is crude) -- just said we've let the artist quality of our animation, especially for children's programming, degrade... A LOT.

Considering what I watched when I was a kid, I worry that my own kids will have nothing to watch but shallow animation with shallow stories.  That's why I stock up on excellent titles now.  That includes really old Disney, as well as Miyazaki and the like.  -v-

Post by: C-Chan on September 09, 2006, 10:27:36 PM
Whatever the explanation is for the Rozen Maiden thing, surely its roots can be traced back to whatever the nice people at Futaba are smoking.  -v-'

But anyway, not that I'm in the Favorite OS-tan topic, here's a good way to slide us back on track....  -v-

Two little facts outta the way first:

1) My favorite Windows OS-tan happens to be Windows 95 OSR 2.5-tan.

2) Although i think that title might be taken by the new vintage Windows-tans I'm drawing, the fact is I'm having a lot more trouble concentrating this time around.  I hope I'm not getting burnt out with all these chibis....  ^^;

So... I spent some time drawing this little tidbit of fanart just to see if it can get me back in the Windows mood:

(http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g2/C-Chan_2006/95OSR2.gif)

It's an icon I made for 95 OSR 2.5-sama's entry on Wiki, a bit of insurance against her possible deletion for being just too darn obscure.  ^__^

But since I don't know how to edit Wiki and don't feel like registering on to yet another site....  -v-

*light incense*

*performs holy piggy dance over a sacred altar*

[dramatically] Oh Great Alfamille God, hear me!
Thy Mortal Pig Servant humbly requesteth that ye upload thither piece of fanart to The Wiki!!  ^0^


*pauses*

...........Wait a sec,... I'm not in the fanart section, am I.....?  T__T'

...................Oh sonuva-- >__<

Sweet avatar...cool possibilites for OSR2.5-sama. Perhaps a rivalry between her and OS/2-tan. Just like Secchan and Me-tan.

Still, I know someone who wants what the people on Futaba are smoking. For example:

QuoteSweet avatar...cool possibilites for OSR2.5-sama. Perhaps a rivalry between her and OS/2-tan. Just like Secchan and Me-tan.

Well, she is a free-range Windows-tan, so she makes an easy target for the likes of the Anti$oft Coalition.  I can certainly see her in many confrontations with OS/2-san.  `v'

Then again, since OSR-sama is always on the move, the other Windows are still the preferrable target since they're easier to find and plot against.

Quote.............GYAH! Freaks!!!  ;^0^;

Cute ones, I'll grant you that, especially that darling rendition of Vista-tan that I prefer over all others.....  ^__^

But still, they're probably a mutant horde out to hunt us with their wide-spectrum vision and eat us.  X__X'

Well, in a way I guess that means advertising this forum isn't such a bad idea after all.  The more people know it exists, the less chance for the purists to go "Amiga?  WTF?!  *Delete!*".

Though we do have plenty of content, I just worry that we may not have enough yet to suit some tastes (at least not enough "finished" content).

Oh well, at least we have more permanent content than most imageboards....  ^__^

Okay, back to the show... ^v^

Accidentally worked on a grander Amiga-chan pic (with C64-chan), so she's reclaimed my top spot again.  ^-^

2k-tan was my introduction to the OS-tan phenomenon, and so has a special place.  I am quite interested to see how the rest of the OS-tans coming out would develop...

......When finals are over in december, Jeff would really want to go on a drawing-spree. Provided the watching anime-spree and finishing games-spree don't interfere. ^^;

Furthermore, for acceptance, I believe that getting artists to draw them all over the place (ie outside of this community) would really help.  And if it ends up in 4chan and 2chan, then success! ^^

Indeed, Punk, the lovely and personable XP-tan is my favorite too; and I'm also a fan of Thunderbird-ko!  Poor little T-Bird doesn't get much attention ââ,¬â€ all of it seemingly going to Firefox-ko ââ,¬â€ but were it not for her, I'd never know when people post replies at this message board.  (Besides, she's hotter than Hell!)

;012

You'll soon learn, if you haven't already, that the status quo ante in the OS-Girls world regarding XP-tan is that she's to be made fun of and otherwise denigrated at every opportunity.  I believe this is due to two factors:  Firstly, XP-tan has emerged as a sexy girl and there are those who dislike overt sexiness in females; and secondly, she's the latest operating system from the hated Microsoft Corporation (I share the hatred of the corporation but refuse to blame XP-tan for Microsoft's many deceits and flaws).

QuoteYeah, ever since being born, the wonderful C64-tan aka Pan-chan has been my favourite, sharing the place with Amiga-tan. ^__^ After the awesome background picture by C-Chan, no one else comes even close.

Okay fine, you Windows fanboys.... -v-
Admittedly, you guys are everywhere and aren't going anywhere, so might as well play to your tune for a while.  -_-
That being said....  ^__^

There is ONE Windows-tan that bests all of yours.  ^__~
The one supreme Windows girl,... the only one powerful enough to win my heart and respect....  Ã,¬vÃ,¬
XP, 2K, Emui, 98, CE, the old hag 95,... they ain't got nothing on her.  `v'

Who is this mighty maiden, you ask?  ^__^
A cookie to whoever can spot such a majestic OS-tan among all the scrubs....  -v-

Ooh! It's 95 OSR 2.5-tan! I like her too! She, 3.1-tan, 3.2-tan and Secchan are my favorite Windows-tans! Although ironically, none of them have appeared yet in zerOSanity and the 'common' girls (ME-tan, XP-tan and 2K-tan) plus CE-tan are 4 of the main characters. Perfect time for Fark-tan to appear with the "Ironic" tag! But "Asinine" works too! *points to signature, reminded with the need to finish p.22!*

Hmmm, a topic about the favorites... nice.

I have three favorites:
1. The first one is obvious (just look my signature): go XP-tan go!!:D
(I have a lot of reasons but I can't write them all because of the limited place to write:))
2. The second one is 2k-tan (combination of intelligence and beauty)
3. The third one is 95-tan because ... she is a classic.

My favavorites right now is 3.

1. 3.1 sama - Her light-purple dress sometimes look likes white. I also like her red eyes too. In my opinion, white represents purity. I think most fanarts make her look cute! > 3 <
2. Vis-tan (ninja) - Maybe she looks fast and active like me sometimes?
(http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j186/panithan/visbou.png)
3. ME-tan - She's also cute! I like her ! ribbon and her hair. That's not enough, me and ME-tan also have the same birthday!
Note: The first appearance of ME-tan was on 6 Aug 2003. I could be her older brother. - _ -

What do you call that, is it 'aerial'?

I like other OS-tans too.
INU-tan - In SD form is cute!
98 & 98SE pair - I think 98SE is a good bonebreaker in Nijikaku game. ;064  
Longhorn pair - They're also cute.
CE-tan - Can you be my guardian fairy?

My faves: Secchan and XP!!
Secchan simply out of nostalgia and having used her the longest on my old IBM Aptiva desktop with voodoo 3 and AMD K6 366MHz (it was like the latest thing in '99), I still used that thing for like 5 years after i got it. And I used win3.11 a lot too when i was little.
and XP for her stability (yes it's pretty damn stable) when you feed XP enough she'll never let you down!
well it of course takes 1GB of high quality Corsair RAM and and AMD64, BUT it runs very smoothly :)

2k-sama is:
a) Portayed as very dependable (a big plus in my opinion)
b)The version of windows I use most (though I use OS X or Fedora more)
c) the first OS-tan I ever saw.

But Exa is right, All the OS-tans "Win", especially non-mainstream ones

To all you Wakachan posters here.... I've got a question for y'all....  `v'

A while back, an artist posted up sketches and CG renditions of an alternative Vista-tan design, and it apparently got a lot of coverage (although not necessarily good coverage, cause the artist still seems to be apologizing a lot).  Does anyone have  a better clue of what the deal is with this artist and his/her Vista design?  

Normally I'd be wondering why that artist doesn't simply post here, but then I wonder too if maybe I'm not realizing the full story here.....  -v-

Anyways, my personal favorite...I can't decide on one, but the top is Inu-T, 2k-chan and 95-sama. Inu-T, cause she's a...dog...and irresistibly kawaii; 2k-chan because, well, meganekko, need i say more?; and 95-sama...one word. MOOD SWINGS. She totally rocks...also she's got a kimono, which is teh good.

Well, come to think of it, I agree NejinOniwa.. at least if I understood him correctly (pale? as in.. like shallow?)  Their designs are cute I guess... but honestly just making a cat girl with the patern the system is named after.. dosnt seem to original or inovative. again you all know I hate boring tans that arnt that well thought out.  I like Sonata, the cute artist girl that throws bombs when she gets really angery.. but these cat ones.. i havent heard anything about them that makes me think there is any depth to their character.  Like NejinOniwa said about the windows tans.. they all have something unique visualy and personality wise to make them lovable.  and there isnt a set system to it.. otherwise vista would have been top heavy, ate ungodly abounts of food and would wear nothing but tape over her nipples cus the system eats more and pays more to visual look then anything else from what ive seen, but instead.. shes a fucking ninja.  or a sailor scout.. or... well you get the idea. they make each unique and for that they are more interesting.  and this is coming from a rabid supporter of cat girls.
Title: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Tsubashi on February 09, 2007, 11:42:03 PM
You're right, I agree that the OS X cat girls are rather under developed. My reasoning is:

a) While each of the actual OS's has differed quite a bit, graphically, they are mostly the same

b) Apple deployed six versions of OS X (counting Intel vs. PPC) in six years, whereas Microsoft released one. This gives the artists less time to explore possible variations and give depth

c)Less people draw Mac-tans = Less variations = Less Ideas

Still I really like Leopard-tan!
Title: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: C-Chan on February 09, 2007, 11:55:58 PM
Reasoning C pretty much sums it all in a nutshell.  -v-

Sonata-san and Generic-san were both pretty bland for me as well at first,... up until I encountered the legendary Mac Manga.  After reading through 68 pages of finely-crafted insanity and perversion, suddenly I have characters who's seedy antics far surpass those of anything Homeo and Friends could dish out.  -v-

As for the OSX girls, we'll see....

Aurora and I will work hard to create some more propaganda material.  -v-

Post by: CaptBrenden on February 10, 2007, 12:01:09 AM
Variations is the big complaint people have about tans these days!! Like the consel tans, cant find a consistant design!

Problem with that C-Chan is that.. one manga should not define a character in this fandom.  The PC oses have personalitys that every artist (well jsut abotu every) understands and captures in their drawings.  their personality comes from the countless individuals drawing them and supporting them.  

You can try, but I doubt that one person can creat enough propoganda to turn the tide. You will need a much better meathod to attract people to their character if you hope to supass the PC OSes.. that and your going to have to change the fact that the MS oses are more used in the world so more people can appriciate the quirks in thier characters.

.................Well okay, now that you mention it, that did get very large very quickly.....  Ã,¬vÃ,¬

Tsubashi-san!  I'm a little booked, so please get over here and apologize to the Captain for me.  ^__^

*clap clap*

But returning back to the topic at hand, when it comes to the Mac-tans we come face to face with the dreaded Catch 22 of the OS-tan world....

More artists won't volunteer to draw a single design unless it's guaranteed to be popular (otherwise, why bother,... just draw your own).  And yet,... it can't be popular unless more artists volunteer to draw that design.  ^___^'

It worked for the Windows-tans due to the novelty at the time, and (as you say) because of the huge user space.  Macs, naturally, are seriously outgunned.  Said fanbase gives the Windows-tans such gems as the legendary XP YouTube thingie and the OS-tan Idol video.  The Mac fanbase, on the other hand, barely scrapes by with a cute albeit easily overlooked manga.  -v-

So in all seriousness it would seem we're screwed,...
But I say it's time for a rallying call, and a complete rethink on how we're gonna go about evening the odds.  ^__^

We've got images, they've got images.
We've got manga, they've got [sporadic] manga.
But we have miniscule multimedia, and they have a shotload.  -___-

So first order of businsss, up the ante:

(http://www.verytragicalmirth.com/Images/dancinOS9.png)

Figured I'd post a small preview because I clearly won't be done with it today (have 19 more frames to go), but the end product will go a long way towards saying, "Hey, we can do that too!"  ^__^

And if I can spare the ambition later on,... supposing a Mac intro video wouldn't hurt either.... I do have some Japanese text-to-speech software to help....  ^.^

Yup. Deja-- err... "They" are another enemy of Futaba's. Another "Public Enemy #1" (the other being Netrunner, who I probably shouldn't have mentioned either)

But I'll admit that I  like "their" rendition of 2K-tan though! Suits her perfectly, IMO!

dont get me wroung -_- we arnt coming down on you.. just pointing it out.  as supporters of the tans we have to be very carefull not to repeat their mistakes.  Also.. if we show too much support of thier stuff that could be bad as well (that and i think NTs designe in those comics was terribly unoriginal)

In fact, I've already drawn some more frames for this new experiment, although I'm still trying to come up with new ways to cut corners.  ^__^

However, since this will be used to develop techniques for my OS-tan micro OVA, I think I'll move all discussions on the matter here:  

http://ostan-collections.net/post-16070.html#16070

That way, you can keep tabs of all my technical notes that are gonna seem outta place in this Favorite OS-tan thread.  ^^

That's true, there isn't many 3.1-sama (I don't write -tan for purpose) fans. She is not enough well known, and in the shadows of other OS-tans, she doesn't get enough attention. (that doesn't mean I don't like other OS-tans , but 3.1-sama needs more love!)

Not really. It will take a while to give her USB-support, a decent network-stack, support for all kinds of filesystems, multiuser-capabilities, but it takes some time to code that into her. Nothing else has the pig said.

Fork her? Then she'd no longer be the 95 I know. That's not so awesome, IMHO.  But I think went into the real OS'es field, instead of OS-tans.
Preferences:
As for OS-tans, 95-tan
As for real OS'es, Windows XP
And I still don't see a good reason in releasing old OS'es as Open Source, and 99.99% of the chances are that they'd be Toy OS'es.

Anyway, it's pointless to add that kind of things to an old OS, and I seriously doubt it'd be able to surpass Vista's capabilities.

Better code to a free and old system than use an unfree, DRM-ridden, user-decieving new OS. If enough people are enticed to code for newly GPLed system, it'll be far better than the proprietary successor soon.

Not like you can buy laptops with Linux included (well, I think they do, they're just not easy to find here), so I'll have no other choice than Vista. And from what I have heard from Vista users I know, its not really restrictive at all, even when they have a LOT of content which would force any DRM program to lockdown the entire computer. Still, will see in a few months what happens, but I seriously doubt it would force me to change OS preference. If it works fine for me, then I see no reason to change it.

And even If Vista turned out to be as evil as some people say it is, then I'd rather change to a Linux distro  =P

There we go!  Thank you, Oh Great Penguin God, for defending me.  ^__^

Can't sic OS/2-tan on him, though, since he drew a rendition of her and is now under contract not to be touched by her.  ^v^'
(besides, last time I tried, she fried me.  ^.^)

Do keep in mind that the Captain long ago said he'd love to install Windows 3.1-sama on his Dell XPS laptop (the one with all that red), so already we have people who would be really really interested in having their favorite vintage OS work with modern hardware.  

While she would be released by M$ as a "toy" for compute hobbyists, the number of Windows fans FAR outnumber Linux ones, and (coupled with the existing library of OSS knowledge and applications vs what was available 15 years ago) 3.1-sama would turn into a dual-core processing, DVD-reading, server-running, 3D-accelerated uber OS very quickly!  ^___^

Case in point, the Linux kernel, is not fundamentally dissimilar from the same one released back in 1990, yet has been continuously maintained by a relatively small and loyal community to the point where it can stand head-to-head with any serious UNIX or Windows system.  Also, Apple recently released their old Darwin OS to hobbyists, and that too has quickly turned from "toy" UNIX-like system, to viable desktop alternative OS by its many supporters.

Another thing is that sooner or later, people will want to port "Open3.1-sama" to other systems, as they've done with Linux.  Imagine running "Open3.1-sama", not just in the laptop you have (no point in buying it with Linux preinstalled, btw, if you can install it yourself for free on any old laptop), but also in your Palm, your Playstation, your PowerPC, your ARM computer, your SPARC server, your IBM mainframe, etc.

Heehee! I still have my old i486 Ambra PC and it still runs 3.1!

QuoteI grew up with it. I used a mac first but 3.1 seemed so much esier to use, so I changed to it

I grew up with Win 3.1 and OS/2 2.0 until 3rd grade, where I and a few others were allowed to use the Mac lab. After using/struggling with DOS and 3.1 + troubleshooting an unstable OS/2 2.0, Mac was such a relief! It was easier for me to use, and thus I started down the path to Mac fandom

I have to say, though, that OS/2 2.2 deterred me for quite some time, and it wasn't until I was in 6th grade that I actually bought my own mac ^^'

Do not forget that she'd get a decent multitasking algorithm. No more cooperative multitaking where one program can crash everything. And SMP instead of just dual-core support, meaning that she can even use those shiny 8-processor machines.

The Linux kernel has changed rather much over the time: It used to be a hack to get to know the PC Linus used. Some C files had as much Assembler-code as C-code in it for that reason. it was not preemptible it did not support several architectures, more than one CPU, more than one filesyystem... ll these things meant the architecture of the kernel changed rather much over the time!

Uhmm...what version of Mac were you reffering to? Apple OS7

That first statement of yours was about a certain usage of a MacOS(?) in which according to you that you find 3.1 is easier and simple. We're not against that, that's your thing-we respect that. All of us are into the more easier and efficient isn't it? I guess almost all of us here or at least 60% of people here had the chance to use 3.1 :) if not always or usual at least maybe in a certain time once.

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"i bloody hated macs then and dislike them more now -_- only the cute sonata has any draw for me.. and its cirtanly not for the system she represents

You know, to be true...I'm not comfortable everytime I compare your first statement to your second statement. I don't find certain relevance and connection to the other. The first one seems to be a more observing statement, but the second one seems to be hateful and aggressive to the opposing brand despite of having many credits recieved.

I have the feeling that regardless you hate ALL the Macs, you have spawned an unlikely despise even though I'm sure you haven't experience the current new version/s of OSX  on a standard period of time-maybe days, months or years of usage.

I am just wondering and expressing my feelings about your posts altough, no disrespect of course.

Now that I know more about the OS-tans, I actually like most of the characters....Homeko (and Saseko) I like purely on the association with my favorite OS, Windows XP.

"There's no school like old school, right?"  ^__^

I'm afraid though that 3.1-sama, 2.0-chan and 1.0-chan are still not old-school enough.  Ever consider pledging your loyalty to a Commodore, Atari, pre-Mac Apple, or Tandy?  Maybe a DOS-chan if you're into black and white OSes,...

Or,... for hardcore antiquity.... a UNIX-tan.  ^.^

I agree! I think she looks much cuter in pix where she's portrayed more realistically and not such a hog with food. I think she's active, fun-loving and is good looking out for her "master"; although, unlike Vistan, she knows that maybe master knows something she doesn't and trusts his/her judgment.

YAY!!!   Another legendary Bella-san post!  ^____^

*preserves specimen*

Actual, you hit the nail on one of my arguments.  M$ has to be credited for at least bringing computers to so many households (though whose to say now if some other system, like a better marketed Amiga, couldn't have done the same?), but after 15 years of being on top of the world they've developed (like most monopolies) quite a bit of gawl and it really shows in the decision-making for Vista-Final.

A startup company, or one hoping to preserve your business, may try everything in its power to keep your business and satisfy almost anything you kindly submit in writing or emails or petitions.  But if a monopoly already has you locked into a particular set of software, and keeps you isolated to the fact that other alternative OSes exist, then they have free reign to be jackasses.

    Want continued support and upgrades for Windows ME?  Or DX10 for XP?
    "Tough.  Get a REAL computer running a REAL OS like Vista."

    Want Vista to support some more legacy graphics cards?
    "Tough.  Don't you know you have to replace your graphics card every 2 months, ya cheapskate?"

    Want them to use ODF rather than that ridiculous so called "OpenXML"?
    "ODF?  What ODF?"

    Want them to divulge source code so they can at least prove their silly patent infringement claim as anything other than hot air?
    "Unless your the Chinese Government................... Tough!! XD"

So clearly efforts must be supported to return the conputer world to something a little more multipolar, for the benefit of everyone not just M$ stockholders.

QuoteHaha, I usually see the BSODs on Secchan (That's 98SE right?) at least 7 times a day and crashes as much as ME-tan does. XD

I should probably point out that one of the screensavers in PCLOS/SAM Linux is a collection of different BSODs from various systems.  There's nothing like returning back to your Linux machine, seeing a Windows blue screen on it, then just chuck it away with a flick of the mouse.  ^.^

Unfortunately, that's somewhat true. Microsoft should change his strategy, stop being too aggressive and actually learning to improve their OS's far more than their counterparts.
I don't see Mac as a real threat to Microsoft. Linux is the most  serious threat, but it's not close enough yet to deal a fatal blow. I guess that's why Microsoft is still trying to attack them instead of learning.

Also, I was talking about mascots, not real OS'es.
I should also improve my sarcasm abilities. Must make them more obvious...
QuoteVienna will be called Windows Linux

LOL

Maybe...maybe in the future Microsoft will make their OSes somewhat Open Sourced, just enough to allow the community to fix bugs and add new features.
But that won't happen by the time Vienna is released.

Quotethey will.. and you can like uh, see that every one around you have windows on their pc.
Not really. I had 3 classmates who use Macs, 1 who uses linux and I have seen several people with Ibooks. And a university in this city just bought about 40 Macs.
Most people just buy them because they look "cool". Or, in the case of the university, because they're superior when it comes to graphic design.

XP-tan being closer to 2k-tan because of Vistan reminds me of a 4koma years ago when 2k-tan being closer to ME-tan because of XP-tan.

Being hard on the youngest eh?

Now about XP-tan's personality and such, I could portrait her as a girl in which children could easily relate and interact with. I believe she has a sweet manner to people, although early anonymous artist took more advantage of "more memory, bigger mass" concept than giving her a more in-depth character. Same applies I guess for futaba' Vis-tan, but not on ++(Nijiura.com) 's Vistan-which is cool though.

XP-tan's sweet manner can be also compared to Sonata's, although (no offense to others) it seems MacOS9 Sonata's personalities are almost of NT-san, ME-tan, 2k-tan and XP-tan's personalities combined.


By the way Bella, nice avatar! It seems you really are reliving your rank as "Mac OS9". I really like her dress and the expression of her face in that pic.

QuoteXP-tan being closer to 2k-tan because of Vistan reminds me of a 4koma years ago when 2k-tan being closer to ME-tan because of XP-tan.

Oh yeah, I remember seeing that one :) I guess most of the "outdated" OS-tans would turn to their older sibling for support (since they went though the same thing too...)

Somehow I don't see Vistan going to Saseko when "Vienna" comes out though ;P

QuoteNow about XP-tan's personality and such, I could portrait her as a girl in which children could easily relate and interact with. I believe she has a sweet manner to people, although early anonymous artist took more advantage of "more memory, bigger mass" concept than giving her a more in-depth character. Same applies I guess for futaba' Vis-tan, but not on ++(Nijiura.com) 's Vistan-which is cool though.

It's a shame the XP's are often portrayed as being quite...erm...floozies...

(Kinda like the Paris Hilton of OS-tans or something, but I don't even want to go there XD)

I agree with you. She's very sweet ^_^

QuoteXP-tan's sweet manner can be also compared to Sonata's, although (no offense to others) it seems MacOS9 Sonata's personalities are almost of NT-san, ME-tan, 2k-tan and XP-tan's personalities combined.

I always thought Sonata-san's personality was pretty unique...NT-san's sorta the motherly (but still a fighter) type, 2k's the reliable businesswoman, ME's the kawaii moe stereotype, and XP's...well we ust went over all that ;) Sonata's artistic and (usually) classy...

I just with the OS X's were as well defined as her :(

QuoteBy the way Bella, nice avatar! It seems you really are reliving your rank as "Mac OS9". I really like her dress and the expression of her face in that pic.

*Sonata Love Points GAINED!*

Thanks! I like that pic too!

my favorite os-tan? Xp-tan. I know you might laugh at me for speaking my mind, but:

I get the feeling I'm in love with XP, I wish I could just sleep forever, cuz in my dreams, she loves me...

She's not only my favorite, I feel obsessed with her.

Yay for Me-tan! I like her a lot because of her personalities - she's funny and weird!

And, Darknight - you have the point. Although, M$ already have done that (they even let a lot of people to be a part of team on Vista last year. Not lot even have passed on that offer, though... X_X Vista is full of stress-inducing errors....) BTW, I have seen a demo of Vienna, the GUI did look really nice (Aero 2 is actually better than Vista's original ones.) - too bad they began beefing the security around Vienna-tan... T_T But, still - yay for Open Source Windows!!! =)

In first place for me is 2K-tan. She's the perfect combination of cute and sexy. (Plus, whenever I do need to make a quick Windows machine, I always put 2K on it.)
Second place is the 98-tan and 98SE-tan "twins." Outright cuteness.
Third place, 3.1-tan. Yet another cutie I can't get enough of.

Notable mention, Homeko. Somehow, she manages to make sweatpants and a zippered sweatshirt look sexy.

It is a toss-up between any flavor of *nix, 2000 and Vista.

Vista-tan is like ME grown-up and finally becoming stable. She still retains some of her quirkiness though.

There should be an amazing OPERA-TAN. I'm going to make one. Did you guys know that the Wii and DS operate on Opera?! AMAZING.
Title: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Justin on July 03, 2008, 11:54:03 AM
I think there's already an Opera-tan floating about.
Actually, Opera for Wii is a separate download I believe and the DS can't even browse the Web. They're actually built on Opera? 0_o
Besides, there is only one good browser. Firefox. :)

Word up.
Besides, Opera is PAYWARE, damnit. No reason to pay for things you can get for free - and can you get better, even less reason for it.
Opera-tan exists already, yes. Check the Galleries, I believe she might even have her own section - otherwise, look at Others or whatever it's called.

In terms of being the most lovable and persecuted modern Windows-tan: XP-tan (I tend to like Pro-tan more than Home-tan, though I use the latter)...

If my decision was based on OS, rather than girl, I would say 95-tan.  But seeing as it's based on girl, it's kind of a tie between XP-tan and 3.1-tan.  They're both equally cute, but I think I'd like XP-tan better if she had smaller breats.  They're a tad too big at times for my tastes.

I associate myself more with Xp Professional-tan. Cute but not loaded down with silly sparkley things, carefree, buddies around with her sisters, and she is on the chubby side, like me!

I truly, truly wish more XP-tan pictures showed her with a cute pudge belleh. This may sound funny, but when I was having body issues seeing pictures of a chubby Xp-tan actually cheered me up, and helped me to be comfy in my own skin.

The big boobies are just a plus next to the cushion!

Win2k tan is too busty ;271  as smart, strong and she likes experiments(i tested rare dos apps with her), but i really love os9tan. She is small, friendly and beauty even with 16 colors(and she have boobs too!!!). also i can talk(really) with her via speech. Unfortunately she has condemned by Steve Jobs in 2002(search "Mac Os 9 is dead") and a disaster in my powerbook vanished her from my systems.
R.I.P OS9 tan, i love you.

PD: i'm looking for hentai images from mac os tans. where are them(private message if is needed)?

I miss Mac OS 9. :( It was one of my favorite Mac OSes. Mac OS 8 was very good too and so was System 7 except for System 7.5 which I thought was terrible. System 6 is another favorite and is the version of the Classic Mac OS I use*! :D The earlier Mac OSes I'm not sure about because although I've read all about them, I've never used them. :-\

I'd have to go with Vista U-tan. Something about her just seems comforting. (maybe it's the power of Vista. lol) I prefer Vista just over a XP OS. I did only use XP and never thought that Vista would be my next best friend. Now I have a few problems with XP (might be hardware issues) and my Vista runs faster than I could want her too.

That, however, requires you to be quite infected with the aforementioned zombie virus in the first place, which would make you a bearer and/or zombie, the first case in which you wouldn't be aware of it and thus more likely to spread it to your partner(s), and in the second case you'd be quite incapable of comprehending the concept of a "kiss" (and quite ugly to boot). Thus, unless your body is able to produce some sort of poison/acid to actually make it a weapon, the exchange of saliva as a weapon is completely REDUNDANT.

And grossly hard to use as a weapon in the first place, too, unless you're a strikingly gorgeous killer queen/gigolo with a license to kill and a master infiltrator etc, and your target is susceptible to your charms.
I mean, hey. If you happen to BE that skilled an assassin, why don't ya just shoot him? (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ptitle8gti69rvj2oq?from=Main.WhyDontYaJustShootHim) Instead of using a very traceable bio-weapon. Sigh. Really. Nope, thermite is superior. Vastly.

Firefox-tan used to be my favourite, but Chrom[e|ium]-tan is... pretty great.

Really like Codie Morgan's 3rd concept:  http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/displayimage.php?pos=-8044

It's only missing one thing.  A shotgun bandolier.  Filled with extensions.  Extensions that look like puzzle pieces...  Hey, is Chrom[e|ium]-tan finalized, or is the concept still being thought out?

I wish Gentoo-tan were cuter, too.  Maybe if she had cat ears and was constantly tugging along a box filled with USE flags and confetti...  and... stuff.  I dunno.  Where am I again?

She could tug a cardboard box overstuffed with package USE flags along with her as she searches for UFOs and combats the military.  Some random nation's military.  Around Chernobyl.  I forgot what I was getting at again.

Plan 9-tan is Unix-sama's defected heir, ran away during the Unix Wars and created her own faction, is a necromancer, 1950s camp-culture enthusiast and general fan of the strange. She has one daughter (Inferno), two clones (Octopus and Plan B-tan) and a small following of zombies. She tends to come off as a bit flaky due to her poor speaking skills and general Cloud Cuckoolanderness. She's generally child-like and innocent and romantically challenged, however she is *totally gay* for Slackware-tan and will PROCLAIM HER UNDYING LURVE FROM THE ROOFTOPS!!!! much to the annoyance/embarrassment of her children. Physically small, pale, wears glasses and has white lop rabbit-ears.

i like all the windows -tans, although chivistan's outfit annoys me to hell. >__<\
i like the vast majority of the mac -tans too, although i just don't know about many of them. :\
as for the linux -tans, i haven't heard enough about their respective personalities to make a proper judgement (i don't want to judge all of them on GNU, which is one end of the spectrum, or Ubuntu, which would be the other end :\).

She's a good -tan.

I'm currently obsessed with the UNIVAC-tans... all... five or six of them. (EXEC, OS 2200, Burroughs MCP* and CANDE*, TSOS aka VS/9*, FASTRAND and U1050-tan.) I'd really like to craft a culture for them, like the others we've made for the DEC, IBM and MIT-tans... but they be a mysterious lot. : \

*Honourary UNIVAC-tans, were incorporated into the company
Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Aurora Borealis on March 12, 2011, 08:29:18 PM
Another honorary Unisys-tan is QNX. Although QNX's first company was never merged or bought out by Unisys, it was used in the Unisys ICON computer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unisys_ICON). QNX-tan would have affiliated with them, but wouldn't have been able to see them in person very often back when she worked for them.

Good choice. :)

As far as canon Windows-tans go, NT-tan's probably my favorite.
OSC-produced Windows-tans: probably 2.0-tan
Canon Mac-tans: Snow Leopard-tan
OSC produced Mac-tans: I have a soft spot for Aurora's System 7-tan.

tbh I love most of the OS-tans we've created here, I don't know if I could play favorites.

Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan

Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 11, 2014, 11:17:26 PM

95-tan is my favorite OS-tan. My other favorites tend to be during the same era, as it's my favorite computer era, but 95 is top because she's so damn headcanonable. Probably because the marketing for Windows 95 is a great source of inspiration.

As for favorite -kun, definitely ME-kun. Just because he's cute. Homeo is definitely a close second, however. I vastly prefer writing females by miles, so I tend to focus more on the -tans.

Amen, sister. Part of the reason I got into (and stayed in) the OS-tan fandom is the abundance of cool/kickass female characters. It's a weakness of mine. >>;;

I agree with you on the 95-tan point. It's one of the more storied Windows releases, so there's a lot of material there for authors to work with should they so choose. Homeo is probably my second-favorite OS-kun as well...

This is better suited for the theories thread but: am I the only one whose considered that Homeo is likely some gender other than male or boy? I know Homeo is usually portrayed as being interested in crossdressing but I've also heard suggestions that they are transgender. There's never been a clear consensus on actual gender identity, though, so it's fair game for theorizing as far as I'm concerned.
Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan

Post by: Penti-chan on September 09, 2014, 12:50:26 PM
That actually does make sense...and does explain a hentai doujin I have; where in the second story in the book, Homeo is physically female.

As far as -kuns, Homeo is cool -w-
I suppose my other favorites are 2k-kun and Emacs-kun* -w-

*The jury is still out on whither they'd be -kun or -tan, given that one pic with Multics. Either way, would snuggle >w>;
Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Chocofreak13 on September 09, 2014, 09:21:19 PM
Homeo is best described by the canon as closeted trans. it has been shown on many occasions that he wishes for the female anatomy (having dreams about gaining tits, nearly killing himself by almost cutting off his penis) as well as feels more comfortable in "womens'" clothing and masquerading as a girl. there are actually some characters that think he IS a girl and don't know otherwise.

on the flipside, while she doesn't care NEARLY as much as he does, Homeko may have slight trans inklings as well. in one comic, when the two are mysteriously genderflipped, she is shown to be EXTREMELY excited and actually dashes to where Homeo is, saying that they can finally have a relationship. this is likely due to her extreme yaoi leanings and brother complex, but the point stands. usually she just doesn't care, though, living as a typical fujoshi (not caring about appearance, bra, diet, or how she presents herself to others).

also, my favourite -tan is all the -kuns.

My favorite OS-tan is (as said in my signature) Windows Me! :) I like her because her best because I like to challenge myself as a hobby to try to install and emulate Windows Me in the enhanced DOSBox SVN builds. Also, I find her colors almost match Fujifilm's old advertising blimp when in the sky, which I think can kind-of relate to Windows Me's newly-enhanced media features like movie-maker! ;D

I can probably say, of all OS-tans, which of them is my least favorite too now that I've been doing more reading in the wiki. The shy 13-year-old Secchan! This is because I think she has a very violent way of fighting Homeo's relationship with FE-tan by hurting Homeo with a can-opener, though Secchan herself also has a crush on Homeo! :'(  But it sure makes for a pretty funny storyline though, like this one for example: https://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/displayimage.php?pos=-2805 (https://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/displayimage.php?pos=-2805)  ;D
Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 12, 2015, 03:51:38 AM
I like Secchan, though I also wonder where her ideas on how to relate to men may have come from. If we think about all the possibilities of where, it could be her twisted reaction to Hacchan's futa side. Perhaps there was some kind of trauma early on that coloured her views. It could also be, under the same reasoning, a reaction to her brothers' relationship with each other. It has been shown in artwork that they're rathe gay for each other (I'd show examples but I'm posting from my phone), so under the same trauma idea maybe she walked in on them doin' it and got all freaked out.

Or maybe she's just a psycho, who knows.

Mm. I ignore that part of Secchan in my fanon. I focus more on the wrestler side of her, seen in Nijikaku.

Edit: For the record, to replace that, I have Secchan, out of sisterly love, interfere with Hacchan's relationships.

After all, "All dicks must die!" can mean "All jerks must die!"

that's true. it could also be overprotective instinct, since Hacchan seems to be the more fragile of the twins (funny since it's the opposite with the brothers).

Given her hatred of dicks, one must wonder if Secchan is a TERF/radfem...

ugh, i sure as hell hope not.

and tbh i doubt it, since she doesn't really actively attack men as a whole, just homeo or sexually active males.

It just occurred to me I have never stated my favorite OS-tan, while it is tough for me to decide I would have to say ME-tan she is always funny, cheerful and always gives it her all.

As far as OS-kuns go I like XP-kun because he's cool, strong and kind.

you're meaning XP Pro-kun, yes? i assume yes.

Yes, not Homeo. But Homeo's cool in his own way.

Strong in the Real Way.


it's nice to hear some -kun love. as for ME-tan, well, it's hard NOT to love her. she's the whole reason we have this site. -w-;;

I love Emacs-kun! Even though that's kind of the artistic equivalent of nepotism on my part.

I also really like IBM 728 and FASTRAND-kun. KRONOS-kun is good too...

this site is so girl-centric (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGjmqZW4nAw) that hearing any mention of OS-kuns kind of pricks up my ears.
Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Bella on May 04, 2015, 12:57:43 AM
Not gonna lie, the female character-centrism of OSC is probably one of the things that drew me in and has kept me here ...

As an impressionable teen who loved drawing and looking at cute anime girls this site felt like heaven.  :P

Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 04, 2015, 01:10:05 AM
that's all well and good, but there are times when the amount of GIRL here is a touch stifling for me, on both a character and non-character level (SO MUCH YURI). ;^;

Fair enough. I'm mentally/physically incapable of girl/yuri-overdose (as my DeviantArt gallery and favorites can attest) so I remain safe for now and the foreseeable future. ^^;;

Sometimes I wonder if I made the right call about his gender, considering the whole Emacs as Operating System theory (http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?EmacsAsOperatingSystem). And the beauty and elegance with which LISP is regarded.

Then again, this exists (http://bellacielo.deviantart.com/art/Autumn-311548638), so who knows really.

@Kari: TBH, I suppose this site feels like an oddity, in being anime related and not being mostly, if not entirely, yaoi. Maybe I'm showing my age here, but it felt like a vast majority of the Cardcaptor Sakura, Gundam Wing, etc. fansites I stumbled onto as a kid were heavily geared toward yaoi fangirls over casual fans like myself, which given I had mom monitoring my internet usage more heavily back then, made my life hell, as I had to be careful where I clicked lest I stumble onto unmarked yaoi :\
(Maybe that's changed in the past 15 years, but that's at least what I remember. Although, I will admit I have seen some yaoi I do like in recent years, so hey -w-)

@Bella: I was thinking of that image when I mentioned Emacs, yes :3
I'm almost tempted to request an image of Emacs-kun* in that dress, having tea with Princess McIntosh** >w>;
*Still in debate on if that's Emacs-kun or Emacs-tan, and if the latter, would that be -kun with a sex change or his long-lost sister?
**That being Rodney McIntosh, roughly age 14 and gender-flipped, in a fancy dress. This will make sense when you see the story that I plan to release in August

PS: Check out On Topic(less); I posted something involving SCO Unix-tan

When I first entered the anime fandom (2007 or so) I remember the prevailing stereotype being that anime fangirls HAD TO love yaoi. Which made me feel like a bit of an oddity as a yuri (and some het) fangirl. '_'

I'm still not sure if that's Emacs-kun crossdressing or magically gender-swapped.

Then again I feel like R63 Emacs would have much larger tracts of land (http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/625/612/50b.gif) ...

Quote from: winduko on May 04, 2015, 06:29:20 AMI can't get enough of either yuri or yaoi, though. Really, if it's either gay or lesbian, chances are I'll ship it. I'm also all for characters not being shipped too. Really, het-shipping is rare for me, but I do have a few het pairings that I like.

For me it really depends on the characters in question — if I like a pair of characters and think they'd make a good couple I'll probably like shipping them without regard for gender. That said I do agree that women and female relationships are somewhat underrepresented in fiction so I choose to focus mostly on females and female pairings in my own creative works.

@Bella: I think maybe that stereotype in '07 stems from the fact it was so prevalent in anime fangroups back in '00, when I got into it, and lived the hell of "one wrong click and something might come up that will set off mom". Hell, just fucking pop-under ads featuring scantily-clad women often got me in trouble*, even though she once told me the ads have nothing to do with what you're looking at but are instead selected at complete random >>;
And now you know half of the story on why I always have some form of ad-block enabled

ME-tan approves (https://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/12513/normal_1323017541487.jpg). Also, now I kinda want to see that >w>;

guys, you misinterepret me. i'm not anti-yuri, i'm pro-OS-kun. we're such a small fandom as it is, and all the OS-kuns barely get any spotlight, that i get excited when i see mention of them. 9 times out of 10 when you're searching for OS characters on other sites they're all cute girls. ;^;

i agree with more females in fiction and bells' "it depends on the characters for me to ship it". as for my own works, i'm always in the camp of "let the characters tell YOU how they act (corny and pretentious, but it works for me)". ergo, i can't determine the pairing of any given characters i write, as they've already determined it for me. :0

speaking of, there's going to be a new story on here soon. by me. and it's yuri. sorta dark yuri.
Title: Re: Your favorite OS-tan
Post by: Penti-chan on May 04, 2015, 06:01:49 PM
Yay! New story! : D

Also, true enough; the -kuns aren't as well represented. Moar art maybe? Like, the aforementioned "Emacs and Princess McIntosh have tea", or something else entirely? :3
