Quote from: stewartsage on March 20, 2015, 08:59:14 PMWait, why do we need to consolidate or downgrade the OS X.x series to pets? It isn't like there's some reason (shortage of space for publishing, a need to streamline storytelling) to not have -tans for every conceivable different operating system or major revision of an operating system.

QuoteNor would it be very logical, as OSX is a brand name. The technology between, say, OSX 10.2 and 10.7 is ludicrously different. (To the point no computer can run both of them as they're not even the same programming language or Apple language either, as the file management system was 100% rebuilt in 10.6.) Meanwhile, Windows 7 and 8 are literally just slightly rehashed Vistas, NT 6.
Quote from: Bella on March 20, 2015, 09:49:48 PMWoo! It worked! ^.^ I'm thinking about working on some characterizations for Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite-tan (sadly I can't find any designs!) but I .. don't really know where to start. ¬_¬ You wouldn't happen to have any ideas for these ladies, would you?
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 21, 2015, 04:11:38 AMThose sound good, Kriz! I haven't been able to keep up with the different OSX versions past Mountain Lion. Only thing I can think of Mountain Lion liking retro stuff, as some of the programs have a more retro look to them, and wears clashing clothes, often with a retro look to them, as a reference to the design elements in Mountain Lion, and how they clashed with the rest of the interface. Mavericks and Yosemite would dress more fashionably. I'm undecided as to whether Yosemite would dress like she's hiking through the mountains, or if she'd dress in a minimalist, futuristic style; the latter referencing the design changes in Yosemite, which moved towards a more minimalist look.
Quote from: Bella on March 21, 2015, 01:05:35 PMWow, thanks for the suggestions Kriz! I really like what you have so far!Can you clarify why Mountain Lion is supposedly from a parallel planet, and why Mavericks and Yosemite are her daughters rather than sisters like the rest of the OS X lineup? Not that I disagree with the idea (I like it given the differences between OS X 10.9 & 10.10 and earlier releases), I'm just curious what your rationale is. I really like Mavericks' bookishness and formal choice of attire (of course I would, given it's my computer's OS) and Yosemite's telepathy and futuristic dress style!Another thing, though this is more my area of expertise/interest since I'm the Unix Fanatic around here — Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite would all be formally a part of the Unix family (Single Unix Certification compliant), which I think would endear them somewhat to Leopard / Snow Leopard-tan (who herself was the first Mac OS X-tan to gain formal entry into the Unix family). It does leave me wondering what Lion-tan did to get disqualified/kicked out, though.

Which would more mean Lion was cheated out of it by the bureaucracy of paperwork, which might leave her a bit embarrassed about it.
