I like them all, especially NeXT-tan, even though AOL-tan looks far better than her "ISP" (I had to use it onceand all I can say it: eeeeeewwwwww).

Good idea! It fits AOL's reputation with porn perfectly! I'll edit the AOL-tan later because it's midnight where I live... and I should... be... getting some.... zzzzzzz....

I can picture it now! AOL-tan trying out her latest spam filter while Fark-tan is laughing while using the "Obvious" and "Ironic" tags! Must... make... or at least suggest 4Koma about this!...

CaptBrenden

spam filter? we dont need no stinking spam filter!

I updated the AOL-tan, just as suggested! Complete with crude stick-figure action and a question mark above her head wondering why her spam filter doesn't work right.

Anyways, so far out of the OS-tans I drew, which one or ones are your favorite?

NewYinzer

They're all good, but System-7 is my favorite.

C-Chan

I'm kinda partial to NeXTStep-tan,...  ^__^
But as NewYinzer said, they're all good.  -v-

(The new AOL-tan, e.g., is hilarious!  ^V^)

CaptBrenden

definitly AOL, probobly cus I know that program a little better so I can appriciate the character more

You Aurora!  ^__^

No no, don't kill her off yet.  People still use the original Red Hat,.. it's only when the OS gets discontinued AND doesn't get used by anyone that it's safe to kill off an OS.  (Although I'm one to talk...  ^^')

Well, we already have one Star Trek inspired -tan, so I'm not sure if two would be stretching it.  -v-
Maybe you could cheat and turn her into a rental car saleswoman.  ^__^
(HARHARHAR!!!  ^v^)

But seriously, I would still stick with the original design and simply make her character more entrepreneurial now that she's an official business OS.  ^__^

She certainly wouldn't be the first special agent to use her vast network of contacts and leverage to form her own business... think of all the ex-KGB who are now oligarchs and politicians.  ^.^

BTW, I'm scheduled to draw Windows chibis this weekend.  So either tomorrow or Friday, I might need to ask you for a favor regarding 1.0-tan.    ^__^

Well, maybe "favor" isn't the right word.... "Permission", perhaps...  ^__^'

Okay, she's keeping her original character design (I was reluctant to consider changing it anyways. Original one suits her better :) ) The rental car saleswoman idea is good, but I can't draw cars. The Motor Law affects ZS! But she'll be entrepreneurial and/or a CIA worker who incorporates some business-y and secret agenty antics into ZS! :D

But as for permission for using the OS-tans I made, Sure! :D

But should she be the original or enterprise version? Or should I have both appear somehow? (I have an idea for the 3rd one, but that's if that gets the most votes)

C-Chan

Hehe,... brief disclaimer....  ^^
The rental car thing was a joke, based off the "Enterprise" rental car commercials.  ^v^'

But yeah, I'd suggest making her the Enterprise version since we want to convey that she's the same OS-tan, only older and slightly more mature.  ^__^

I kinda cheated the same way when I did the single OS/2-tan character, since OS/2 and OS/2 "Warp" are technically two different systems.  ^__^

(Not unlike Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.... ^v^)

Okay, I'll be back later to elaborate on my proposal for 1.0-tan.  -v-

Aurora Borealis

I haven't seen the Enterprise rental car commercials, so I didn't get the reference at first! But of course I made a reference in my last post too- The Motor Law is a reference to the song "Red Barchetta" by Rush! ^^

Hmm.. and I didn't know that there can be OS-tans that represent 2 seperate systems like that! I learn something new everyday!

C-Chan

*multiple question marks appear over C-chan's head*

Red.... Barchetta......  '__';

Hehe, okay I see your point.  ^__^
But note for future reference -- always be suspicious every time the pig laughs maniacally.  ^v^
That means he's up to some sort of mischief.... -v-

In any case, yeah that the thing with the OS-tans happens quite a bit.  Before you and at least one other artist broke it down between System 1, System 6, System 7, etc., there was a single, catch-all, "generic" Macintosh-tan that stood in for all of 'em (except Sonata-san).  
Same with Linux-tan,... originally meant to represent ALL of the Linux-distros, up until Juzo-kun and similar fans rallied to create RedHat, Fedora, Ubuntu, SUSE, etc, etc, etc....  ^__^

But that kind of compression is the only way a single artist can draw various systems.  Otherwise, if you attempted to draw each an every version of each and evern OS-tan in existence, you'd never end:
[warning: large PDF File]

http://www.oshistory.net/images/non-unix_os_history_0.3.14.pdf

And to think that's just the NON-UNIX descendants, who themselves form a family tree just as large....  ^^;

But anyway, onto business (so pull in RedHat Enterprise-tan if you'd like....)  ^v^

My coming pic will pair Windows 2.0-tan with Windows 1.0-tan in the usual chibi-portrait format.  Of course I'll be incorporating the hair/body you provided, plus the patches (since she was, in effect, a glorified patch job).  But if you don't mind, I'd like to put her in an old-style dress.  Nothing terribly fancy, but it was something gifted to her very recently.  ^__^
In her youth, though, she would have worn slacks and suspenders all the time, so I don't mean it to replace your current rendition.  Just thought I'd give you a heads up....  'v'

holey carp that a big tree.

reminds me of the programming language tree in my AP Computer Science class last year...
