A UNIX Family reunion, perhaps? or IRIX-hime and Amiga-tan running across one another?

Just various Unices engaged in hand to hand combat.

Quote from: Penti-chan on May 01, 2019, 10:42:56 pmTBH, I once had an idea for 2k-tan and 10-tan meeting, and just being like "...who are you?"
(reason: I setup 10 and 2000 to dual boot, for fun; the latter being one the oldest Windows versions I could get to seamlessly dual-boot with 10, without hardware incompatibilities on either side)

I don't have a script set up for that yet, but that idea could be the basis of a strip about the limits of dual-booting, and of just how far back can a current OS coexist with an older OS on the same computer. I only used Windows 2000 a few times, but there should be some differences that 2k-tan and 10-tan would argue over.

I third the idea that the Unix Family reunion would be a lot of fighting! I have a rough idea for how that could be made into a comic. I'd want to include a scene where they all try to take a family photo, but can't stay still long enough to not fight each other, so all of the pictures turn out badly, and the photographer gets too frustrated and walks out. Who do you think that poor photographer would be?

With the IRIX-tan and Amiga-tan idea, would it be in the past or the present? I learned from you that they would've had a rivalry back in the 90's because of the 2D vs 3D rivalry, but I need some more details.

Very true. In my experiments, 2000 was the only one that worked well enough to be almost practical, even though I had to make a few sacrifices on the 10 side to balance things out (Mostly in terms of controllers; as 10 is held back by being forced to use IDE to maintain compatibility with 2000, since I had trouble getting SCSI or SATA to work).

I always wanted a 3 or 4 panel of old looking 2K-tan and ME-tan waiting on the steps of a nursing home as XP-tan gets wheel up to sit with them.
Them all sitting there content, looking off down a path at Vistake coming with a walker.

Either or... actually hmm, maybe both, showing how their perception of each other has changed?

Leopard-tan, perhaps? (the first version of OS X to meet the Single UNIX Specification)

For all your Unix-shunning needs, I highly recommend MERT-tan.

CB Unix might also be a good choice.

I could draw that, because it reminds me of some other drawings about OS-tans losing their company support, but I have some mixed feelings about it, because it's become established that OS-tans stop aging past a certain point. They can get a lot weaker from a loss of support and losing most of their userbase. What could definitely work is drawing XP-tan crying over losing her support, and turning to ME-tan and 2K-tan for help coping with it. Losing her support would've been emotionally devastating for her because she knew it was going to happen eventually, but XP still has a sizeable following. Didn't Vista lose support before XP? I'd envision that Vistan would be annoyed with XP-tan crying over losing her support if Vistan lost hers before XP-tan did, but that they'd put their rivalry over this aside.

I'll need some more details about that. How do you think their perception of each other has changed? Because of some indie games being 3D, but a lot of them being 2D and some of those using pixel art styles reminiscent of 80's and 90's gaming, IRIX-tan's and Amiga-tan's 3D vs 2D rivalry could go either way. It could've cooled down after Amiga-tan was happy to see 2D gaming be revived. I assume their rivalry in the 90's was from IRIX-tan thinking that 3D gaming was the future, and Amiga-tan not wanting 2D gaming to be obsolete and forgotten. Their rivalry could've also been sparked again because of the comeback 2D gaming has made.

She'd be a good candidate! I see her as being interested in her Unix heritage, but impartial to all of the branches within the Unix Family, and avoiding their conflicts because her loyalty is to the House of Mac first, and she wants to be an observer documenting history.

I don't remember the details for CB Unix-tan, but poor MERT-tan! She'd be a good candidate too, but being in the same room as the Unix Family is dangerous for her! How will they make sure that Unix doesn't try to kill her? I'm surprised that she remains in the Linux/Unix Consortium despite the danger to her. Perhaps the Linux-tans are willing to protect her?

If she will be the photographer while Unix is in the group picture because Unix agreed to not kill MERT-tan (this time?), one of the punchlines could be that MERT-tan looked death in the eyes and lived to tell the story about it!

CB's UNIX's bastard daughter from Ohio that was also used in telephone switching applications.  She or Snow Leopard are probably MERT's best friend, maybe both.  My original post with Bells' corrections below it are here.

UNIX probably wouldn't go for her in so public a venue.  How much she actually wants MERT dead is to a degree debatable, but she does want her to suffer.  Being forced to socialize could come under that heading, with of course UNIX-sama's 'blessing' just to worsen her UNIX related flashbacks.

The Multics + Cray-1 comic has been completed, and is 8 strips long. These first 4 are revamps. The last 4 will be posted later! I started this when I made this thread, but dropped it after page 5 was half-complete, and only up to page 6 or 7 was storyboarded.

I thought up some more ideas to the Unix Family reunion comic. This will be a challenging one to draw because so many characters will be featured, and fighting each other! I'll include as many of them as I can fit in, including the exiled members and the defectors who are there because Unix made made her invitations to the reunion mandatory!

As for who the photographer will be, I decided on MERT-tan for the role, because she's disliked by most of the Unix-tans, and because she has powers that can help her escape their wrath!

The next 3 comics will be simpler ones:
1. DEC Family comic about OS/8-tan's habits and inability to keep track of time.
2. RSTS-tan visits the Vintage Federation; an idea from the previous page.
3. C64-tan wearing a new uniform for a family photo, and accidentally causes trouble for it! This is based off a discussion about what anime-inspired accessory or outfit would she be wearing in the present day?

Are those some DEC-TANS I see?
