Quote from: Simonorged on May 15, 2013, 10:12:04 AMMight I suggest that for the wiki Linux XP has a doppleganger darker color scheme.
Quote from: Gussy Keniji on May 22, 2013, 01:17:08 PMWhoooah, now I feel kinda poopy for not being around to be a part of this big move. Looks like theres tons of content to slog through but, from what I've skimmed through we've got some great concepts floating around. I'm gonna read through -errything- and see if I can do some stuff, it's about time I like...I dunno, stopped being dead for a change, anyway. :V

Quote from: undefined[2:17 AM] Halian: fills time and wastes space by imagining IRIX-hime dressed casually. Probably jeans and a white/purple baseball tee with the SGI logo, oh and the shades. How heretical.[2:18 AM] Halian: Then again for someone as vain aesthetically-minded as her, whose everyday outfit is a ball gown, "casual" is probably far less casual than I'm thinking of[2:26 AM] Halian: I mean as powerful as Solaris-tan and UNIX-sama are, it would be entirely plausible for IRIX-hime to be a low-grade reality warper under the guise of graphical sourcery[2:33 AM] Halian: Unrelatedly, I headcanon IRIX-hime's shades to be the source of her powers, and perhaps she gets migraines & eventually seizures (or just faints crashes) if she tries to do sourcery without (or perhaps simply if she goes without for prolonged periods of wakeful time), since software acceleration can't hang[2:39 AM] Halian: wonders how IRIX-hime might have changed after 2006, when SGI dropped support for IRIX, and especially after the buyouts by Rackable & HP Enterprise[2:40 AM] Halian: especially since her shades can no longer be replaced if something happens (TBH she probably hoards any other examples SGI made for that very reason)[2:50 AM] Halian: Consider also that SGI's former headquarters are now owned by Google, so IRIX-hime might have Opinions about that
Quote from: Halian on March 30, 2019, 02:47:36 AMRandom quotes from the Discord server about IRIX-hime headcanons/theories:
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 AMI agree with all of those headcanons! IRIX isn't an OS I know much about, and I learned some more about it from you, but having a degree of reality warper powers is a fitting way to express her graphical capabilities. The drawbacks to her power also fitting since software acceleration can't hang.
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 AMThe most casual outfits I can imagine her wearing are ones that still have a futuristic vibe to them, or some 1980's style outfits because they'd go well with her shades. I'd imagine she could wear a basic t-shirt and jeans if she were on a dare!
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 AMNot being able to have her shades replaced would probably force her to be very cautious about using her powers, and when to use them. She'd probably be forced to avoid fights too. If she likes to show off, and I assume she does, it'd be a difficult choice.
Quote from: Aurora Borealis on March 30, 2019, 10:47:46 AMHaving her support dropped and the buyouts would've hurt her morale. OSes that come from long-spanning families where daughters or younger sisters are the successors to the next in the same company, such as the Windows and Mac families all know that it's inevitable that their support will be dropped, usually in a few years. The Unixes are different since almost all of them are from different companies from another, and could each remain current OSes for many years to come. For them to have their support be dropped, it can be a shock to them.
Quote from: VolareVia on March 30, 2019, 12:20:23 PMThe only thing I know about IRIX is that the fsn file manager is a thing, so I can assume that she's a showoff.
Quote from: Bella on April 29, 2019, 02:15:40 PMA while back I learned that OpenVMS is being maintained by a group of former DEC employees under their own company. I also learned there's an ongoing effort to port VMS to x86.I believe the story implications for this are VMS-tan being rescued by, and reuniting with, the DEC-tans. Since she's effectively no longer beholden to any company, surrounded by people who know her history, AND not in imminent threat of being displaced again, I imagine she has lost the mask and is generally in a much more relaxed place mentally. I'm less certain what the implications of VMS on x86 hold for VMS-tan.
