Nah see, windows is good, it has the be like a google phone but way worse

Windows Mobile maybe?

Reasons I'm like Amiga-tan:
Reddish hair, physically awkward, artistic, good learner, likes retro, especially 50s/60s things, friendly with everyone, underutilized potential

Reasons I'm like Multics-tan:
Purpleish hair, interested in aesthetics, more interested in theory than practice, well-regarded despite not doing much, will never be over Emacs


it's pretty much been established that i'm a less productive version of Windows XP Home. :0

Sometimes, I think the most accurate one for me would be PCDOS-tan; as mentioned earlier, "cheerful on the outside, bitter on the inside"...although, sometimes I'm more bitter than anything.

i have no idea what you just said.

the idea behind Chromebook is that google made a computer which can run off of their homebrew OS, but only off of that. so like, a Mac Jr. Chrome is to Google what IE is to Microsoft.

so IE can't really have an operating system when it already does. :\

That's what i'm saying actually, if IE had an operating system like Chrome does, despite Windows existing.
it can't be a windows phone because windows has a good name, and even if it does have IE on it (Though I'm pretty sure it doesn't.)
It's still a way better quality device. internet explorer as far as i know never had an app store. Microsoft does but IE doesn't.
Simon was here :P<br />


for that to happen, though, IE would need to be an independent company. :0

i think a LapZilla is more likely. :0

I can dig it! I'm not sure cheerful is exactly her default demeanor though, IIRC she runs cool on the outside, bitter on the inside.

I can also see Xerox PilotOS-tan or even OS/2-tan potentially matching with you.

Hmmm this is tough... while I'm not like any of these -tans, I do share a few similarities.

In one way I'm like OpenVMS-sama, cause I something of the strong silent type, I simultaneously love and hate Windows NT and its descendants, and I like the ocean, and travel.... ^^

In one way I'm like Multics-sama, cause I can be a depressive mope, I'm usually likable but when someone dislikes me they can REALLY dislike me (or vice-versa). I'm initially mistrustful of most people, but once I warm up to someone I trust them for life. I'm also a very complex person. ^^'

And in a few ways I'm like Unix-sama, cause I love throwing things at people when I'm angry, I certainly have a temperamental side, I can live in very sparse conditions. ^___^;


I also just went through the thread and found this:

To get this back on topic, do you have any friends or acquaintances that remind you of any of the OS-tan characters?

I reiterate: my professor is without doubt MTS-tan's (yes, that MTS-tan, and even the description fits) spirit animal. Don'cha knooow.



General Northern Midwestern/ambiguously Canadian, yes.


i'm trying to draw parallels to my coworkers, and i can't outside of being somewhat timid like MS-DOS-tan. :0

I'd be a male version of Arch Linux because I'm a complicated human being but also a simple one and because complete freedom.
I'm just a guy who uses Arch Linux, wears trenchcoats, and loves girls who are tomboys.
