Depends on what you mean, honestly.

If you mean from what we say on Discord/the forums to the Wiki, if someone else agrees with me I just put it on there if it's something minor like names, and ideally maybe a bit more if there's something major and you're not the only one who has in-depth knowledge on the OS.

If you mean from what we say to something universal? I doubt it. The proposed segregation would make it hard for it to become truly "canon".

For example, because "Start Me Up" is a very sexually-charged song, a number of us agree that 95-tan would be a sexual kind of woman. However, it's far from a universal idea, even within our community, and thus should be put on the fanon section of the character. Absolutely not canon, but a fairly notable interpretation that at least some individuals here have.

Part of me imagines IRIX-hime as sounding like an older Rei Ayanami or Yuki Nagato, thanks to her expressionlessness heretofore, so perhaps Brina Palencia (Rei, in Rebuild) or Michelle Ruff (Yuki).

UNIX-sama would have to be someone who can do a flawless New Jersey accent, for obvious reasons. :P But also still sound like she fits the role instead of a stereotypical mafiosa.

I like coffee, but granted, I come from a family of coffee drinkers xD
(Just, if I drink too much of it, it messes with my stomach)

At what point does a theory originated here cross over from fanon to OSC canon?

I'd very likely go insane.

WWYDI you woke up in a world, whether this one or an eerily similar isekai, where moë anthropomorphizations of all sorts, including but obviously not limited to OS-tans, were accepted as commonplace?

I don't drink coffee, as I can't stand the taste. Same with liquor, plus the added wrinkle of ASD + booze → angry drunk, usually.

Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 amI agree with all of those headcanons! IRIX isn't an OS I know much about, and I learned some more about it from you, but having a degree of reality warper powers is a fitting way to express her graphical capabilities. The drawbacks to her power also fitting since software acceleration can't hang.
Nice! ^_^ I also think IRIX-hime being a reality warper makes undue amounts of sense when you look at the names of some of SGI's graphics chipsets (e.g. Infinite Reality).

Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 amThe most casual outfits I can imagine her wearing are ones that still have a futuristic vibe to them, or some 1980's style outfits because they'd go well with her shades. I'd imagine she could wear a basic t-shirt and jeans if she were on a dare!
Which makes perfect sense, since she originally came out in 1988 -- either that and/or early 90s outfits, since that time was the zenith of her popularity. Jeans and a T-shirt would be the "oh shit I need to leave the house and all my Real Outfits are in the washer/at the cleaners" absolute last resort. (Also, now I'm imagining IRIX-hime in a kimono on a dare from Windows 95-tan.)

Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 amNot being able to have her shades replaced would probably force her to be very cautious about using her powers, and when to use them. She'd probably be forced to avoid fights too. If she likes to show off, and I assume she does, it'd be a difficult choice.
I imagine nowadays she mostly, if not exclusively, uses her graphical sourcery for peaceful ends (and/or brings bodyguards). So her formal job title might well be something to do with A/V or music festivals or etc.

Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 amHaving her support dropped and the buyouts would've hurt her morale. OSes that come from long-spanning families where daughters or younger sisters are the successors to the next in the same company, such as the Windows and Mac families all know that it's inevitable that their support will be dropped, usually in a few years. The Unixes are different since almost all of them are from different companies from another, and could each remain current OSes for many years to come. For them to have their support be dropped, it can be a shock to them.

Quote from: VolareVia on March 30, 2019, 12:20:23 pmThe only thing I know about IRIX is that the fsn file manager is a thing, so I can assume that she's a showoff.
IRIX and associated tools (e.g. Maya, whose manufacturer was owned by SGI for a while) were used a lot to make special effects for films, and were also used for N64 development (as SGI had a hand in developing that console). Her current wiki article reflects this as such with her vanity aesthetic-mindedness (see also: the eye-candy case designs of SGI machines and little things like IRIX' isometric vector icons), so I imagine being a showoff would go hand-in-hand with that. However, I also get the feeling that she's stoic if not emotionless from her straight faces in all three works of art that depict her, so who knows.

Personally, I picture 2k-kun being voiced by Steve Blum (voice of Spike, from Cowboy Bebop) xD

Makes sense to me to separate, say, fanon things without as much material backing it (see: OS9-tan loving Mountain Dew; which is strictly a thing in my stories) from the stuff that could be considered canon (see: XP-tan loving beef bowls).

I do remember when I first gained wiki access, I was working on a project to add profile pics to those that didn't have one, but sadly, life got in the way and I never got to finish that. Maybe on a day off, I can see what I can do to continue that.
