Technical details

AROS is an open-source Amiga-like operating system that aims to be multimedia-oriented and compatible with AmigaOS at an API level. It runs on a variety of architectures, including PPC, x86, ARM and m68k (allowing it to run on the Amiga 1200).

Character details


AROS-tan is a young girl of perhaps 10 or 12, with long, slightly waved cream-white hair with bangs, light skin, yellow cat-like eyes and navy blue, white-tipped cat ears and a tail. She has been depicted in winter-wear in most drawings, with navy blue tights, a long, teal-and-white-piped fur-lined coat, burgundy shawl, red earmuffs and white gloves.

Her pet is known simply as "AROS Kitty" - a rather ornery-looking black cat with white paws, a tuft of white hair on the top of his head and yellow eyes.

Family and Relationships

AROS-tan's mother is Amiga-tan and her older sister is MorphOS-tan.
