Quote from: VolareVia on April 16, 2019, 09:18:34 pmMakes enough sense, honestly. I assumed they could be seperate, but I could see them being the same.

It was simpler to keep them the same character, but it also gives GEM-tan a happier turn of events with her becoming open sourced and being able to improve herself without the fear of being punished anymore. After many years, she found freedom!

Quote from: undefinedThe Classics could very easily have taken examples from their younger kin, and became more diplomatic. Character development is always good, after all. :)

Indeed! Yay for character development! Tiger-tan would've been a great role model in particular because she introduced Bootcamp, and was the first OSX version for Apple's successful Intel Mac project.

Quote from: undefinedInteresting :o
I honestly wonder what networking is like. I personally envision it as being different dimensions, with the Internet being a particularly powerful dimension.

That sounds cool! I thought of it was telepathically linking to share information and share powers! That could help explain how System 3.4-tan survived as a wanderer for so long other than she somehow cheated death many times. She's physically weak, and can barely fight on her own, but could specialize in psychic abilities and coordinated attacks.

Quote from: undefinedWith this in mind, I wonder if System 6 and System 3.4 aren't twins, but rather first cousins born at around the same time.

Also, I know the last few versions of System 6 were released on the day of System 7's release, or even later.

I see them as twins because of the same Finder version, and being released at almost the same time. 3.4-tan's the older twin if we go by that. I still can't find for certain whether 6.0.8 was released in April 1991 or May 1991, but there was a version that was released in 1992.

Quote from: undefinedhehe

I recall hearing something about "making your faves suffer" being good writing. Her situation naturally causes suffering. :P
And thus, she suffers.

System 7.5 has a troubled history so there's a justification!

Quote from: undefinedI think if I recall she was open source until QNX was bought out by Blackberry, so now she's proprietary besides licenses.

The FSF are extremists who don't think hobbyist licenses are acceptable, and think that everything should be libre under all circumstances, and that OS-tans who don't do this are morally bankrupt.

I thought QNX was open sourced at some point, until it was bought out by Blackberry, but that makes perfect sense that the FSF would see her as a traitor.

Quote from: undefinedActually? Yes. Yggdrasil Linux had its final release before there were blobs in the Linux kernel, which means the FSF find her libre enough.

There probably are enough good and libre OS-tans in the Vintage Federation for an attack on them to not be seen as worth it.

Yggdrasil Linux was one of the earliest Linux distributions to get discontinued, which was unfortunate, but the timing saved her from being seen as an enemy to the FSF.

So, as far as the FSF is concerned, OSes that are libre enough are better off getting discontinued before being developed long enough to no longer be libre?

Since the idea of a historical Novell Faction was brought up, it could've existed, but when it would've disbanded is unclear. I assumed it would have when SUSE Linux-tan joined the Linux/Unix Consortium, but since she's one of the oldest Linux-tans, she would've been from the original Linux Union that merged into the LUC when that merger happened, which was probably in the late 1990's or early 2000's. Novell acquired SUSE in 2003, which is late for this timeframe.

If the Novell Faction existed, NetWare-tan was its founder. She was the only member until she sought recruits to diversify Novell's power and to compete against Microsoft, so the OSes from Digital Research were recruited in 1991 (DR-DOS, GEM, FlexOS), UnixWare was recruited in 1993. She also recruited several programs from buying out their companies, but most of them were dismissed from the faction between 1994 and 1996, which left it on the verge of collapse. She met SUSE Linux-tan later after this time and they allied with each other in 2003, but it's unclear if NetWare-tan had a faction left of her own to recruit anyone into. Their alliance was an unpopular one that made them both enemies of the FSF.
