Quote-_- becareful with redesigns... thats the pit deja vu fell into...
Quotebut at least im not the only one thats noticed that the mac tans lack personality compiared to the far more colorful windows tans
QuoteNothing is really known about the OS 10.x-tans' personalities, sadly
QuoteDoes anyone else think that Windows tans have more personality because of the system's quirks? And the fact that every few years Windows gets 'redesigned'?
QuotePerhaps that could be one reason. ^__^ But the major reason, hands down, is volume. Compare the number of Vistans to the number of OSX Leopard-tans proposed. The difference in volume is striking -- and a true indicator of where all the talent is spending its time on. If enough artists created pictures, manga, games and videos of the OSX girls, then their personalities would bloom like cherry blossoms. ^v^
QuoteFor the OSX girls, you're essentially working without a backstory, other than perhaps piecing together analogies to their real-life counterparts.For their personality,... my suggestion would be to study as many pictures of them as you can and try to imagine what personality the artist intended to give them.
QuoteSpoken like a true rabid fan pig (might have to put this one down.. onto a tasty biscut with cheese and egg...) But another posibility is people care about Windows more sbecause its a larger share of the market?
QuoteVery interesting points, C-Chan. I've always thought the Mac OS X characters were very well designed, from an aesthetic point-of-view (Cheetah seems to consistently be purple-haired with an eye patch, Tiger blonde and dressed in black, etc.). In my drawings, I would certainly try to conform to these designs.
QuoteI tried doing both of these, just to see what would come out of it...here are some thoughts:All in all, OS X is a far departure from the classic Mac OS (up to OS 9). It'sUNIX-like, closely related to BSD and NEXTSTEP...therefor, I would theorize that the Mac OS X-tans would be very friendly to Unix-tans and Linux-tans.
QuoteCheetah: after researching both the OS and the OS-tan, I can support what Aurora said about her attitude. Especially her clumsiness, which could be a reference to OS X 10.0's rough start...at the first release it was slow, prone to 'kernel panics', and was not feature complete (Although these problems were later worked out).
