Well, introductions huh? Not the thing I'm best at doing but I guess we'll start. I'm Tasha04 and I like anime, OS-Tans, drawing weird blob things and writing.

Just installed my SSD a couple days ago, and decided to use the Cinnamon version of Linux Mint for a change of pace. After a few minor tweaks to line everything up like I like, here we are

VMS-tan: either Linda Hamilton or Sigourney Weaver, leaning toward the former.
OS/2-tan: whichever one VMS-tan isn't.

AMIX looks even better in color!

Quote from: Aurora Borealis on May 11, 2019, 08:29:20 pmIt is. :( Do KRONOS and BUIC have any chance of being resurrected like MTS does?
I agree now that it's a judgment call whether certain OS-tans should be resurrected. I'm fine with leaving that open-ended.
No, unfortunately.  BUIC was pretty thoroughly destroyed after shut-down and I've never heard a peep about KRONOS media still existing.  CDC's equipment was popular, no question, but it doesn't have the devoted user cult that DEC products do to the best of my knowledge.



Quote from: Aurora Borealis on May 11, 2019, 08:29:20 pmAn OS-tan concept I had notes saved for, but hadn't drawn: Cray-2-tan

Name: Cray-2
Debut: 1985
Height: 188 cm (6'2")
Hair color: Dark blue
Eye color: Dark gray
Status: Alive

-Hot-headed, pressured to be an overachiever by Cray-1, but suffered many setbacks and tough competition during development. (development started in 1979, released in 1985)
-An excellent multitasker and fast thinker. (Had fast memory, and could process large datasets quickly)
-Was the fastest and most powerful supercomputer until 1990. (Clock speed of 244 MHz for a computer released in 1985)
-Despite her power, she had a lot of design problems, and her body had to be rebuilt multiple times, and she felt like a failure for not living up to some extremely high expectations. (The Cray-2 had to be rebuilt due to design problems, and was intended to be 10x faster than the Cray-1)
-Overheats easily and has worse overheating problems than Cray-1-tan. Always carries a cooling tank, or is seen in the water.
-Primarily uses water-based magic.
-Worked for the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, has worked in nuclear research and sonar development.
-Doesn't mind practical jokes. (The Cray-2 was nicknamed "Bubbles", and there were running gags by Cray-2 users such as putting "No Fishing" signs on the cooling tanks, or putting plastic fish in them)

Appearance: Has a similar hairstyle to Cray-1-tan, but with dark blue hair and dark gray eyes, and wears a 19th century style swimsuit in black with gray accents, and with blue panels on the skirt, like the panels Cray-1-tan has on her dress. Wears a lot of metal hair pins referencing the circuit cards being joined by Z-pins or pogo pins.

That's a solid design, Aurora.  More Crays can only be a good thing.  How long before people start stacking things on a sleeping Cray-2.
