Guys

I think Windows 10-tan (and -kun, if one pops up, though I've never seen one) will have an army of 3.1-tan and 3.1-kun clones

because 10's browser has the code name "Spartan Project"

and a codename for Windows for Workgroups 3.1 was Sparta

and Sparta was (in?)famous for the Spartan Army

Chocofreak13

just the browser? or the OS itself?

(are they the same thing? these crazy kids these days with their newfangled browserOSes.... )

winduko

It's just the browser. Windows 10's codename was Threshold.

Chocofreak13

idk if there'll be clones, since 3.1 is an OS whereas this is a browser. but who knows, there might be. all we can tell for sure atm is that Microsoft is lazy with their codenames. :\

[secretly expects them to reuse Chicago, NT 5.0, Neptune, and Whistler at some point or another]

@Kari: Meh, true. I thought it would be funny.

And yeah, I learned that Microsoft was lazy about codenames a long time ago, but I thought that it was funny enough to warrant a reference.

@Pent: NT 5.0 wasn't exactly a codename. It's the technical name for Windows 2000. The guy behind the project was even said to have "not liked codenames."

But if I am correct on the release date of Windows 10, I would be surprised that they didn't codename it Chicago.

Actually no. It would have ruined the surprise.

Chocofreak13

they're gonna nickname it Cleveland instead. xD

I wanted to apply a theme song to a pairing.

So here is Windows 3.1-tan/System 7.5-tan's theme song. Because I caught myself running into this song, and I felt it describes their relationship more or less.

I thought they we're killing Internet Explore and replacing it with Spartan?

Chocofreak13

you ship 3.1/7.5? .__.;

I've never followed the Macintosh-tans much but after looking it up a bit I would say sure why not, cross the boundaries of OS families. We need more of that nowadays as it seems everyone has a side and hates the other. I often use my Mac and PC at the same exact time. (I now have the song Why can't We be Friends stuck in my head)

Platonically, yes.

I can't see them being romantically involved, and even with the whole platonic thing it is kinda one-sided. It's like one-and-a-half sided.

There is also the long-shipped and recently proven canon ME-tan/Mac OS 9-kun.

Also, I would imagine that most Windows-tans*, at least now, are at least neutral towards Mac-tans. I'd also assume that there aren't many (and probably none who hate all Windows-tans, 3.1-tan is probably seen as hard to hate by them!) anti-Windows Mac-tans today.

*all Windows-tans depending on how you interpret 95-tan willing to help ME-tan after marrying a Mac. Is it that she has gotten over her hatred? Is it that she made Kyuurou an exception? Is it something that I haven't thought of? I don't know, but Kyuurou-kun being the exception to her hatred is my personal favourite explanation. xD

i've shipped ME x Kyourou since i got here, largely because it's what the japanese creators intended. i was surprised at the shipping of 3.1, is all, i've never really heard of her being shipped with anyone. :0

also, i feel like This Antique Thing i did for college sums up 95's feelings towards Kyourou well. :0

Penti-chan

TBH I've shipped 2k with OS9-tan -w-
