Quote from: "Aurora Borealis"Well, Xenix-tan was considered a traitor by the Unices, made worse by that she was loyal to the MS Family to the very end, even when the Family were turning to imperialist ambitions...And ultimately, NT-tan's forces conquered the server market that was dominated by the Unices! However, I don't know if Xenix-tan lived to see that. About what year did she end up dying? Her death caused by sabotage could have been a result of some of the hard-lined Unices working together to eliminate the 'traitor'. That is if they weren't too busy tearing each other apart! As for the new categories, I'll see if I could add them in. For the original Annex Project, hardware and app-tans weren't (with just a few exceptions) included, but now that there are already plenty of hardware-based characters (particularly various historical mainframes) already included, sure why not? But when it comes to hardware-tans/-kuns, it should mainly be limited to historical systems, because with modern systems, the roster could quickly get unwieldy! @_@
Quote from: "Kari"that is, unless we condense the brand into one particular -tan.
Quote from: "Chocofreak13"i'll agree, it's unfair to rep an entire group with just one -tan. but shouldn't they be represented somehow?then there are the ones who already made it through, like the dualcore-tans.
