Windows 3.2-tan (3.2たん) is one of the least common Windows personifications. She personifies Windows 3.2, which was a Simplified Chinese version of Windows 3.1 for the Chinese market. The OS itself is identical to Windows 3.1 in every way, except for the issues related to the complex writing system of the Chinese language. Her design is derived from Windows 3.1-tan, and is thus personified as a frail grey-haired young woman in traditional Chinese clothes, with a 3.2 brooch on her collar. Like 3.1-tan, she also has an animal companion that represents DOS; hers is a black rabbit.

Character Details


She isn't actually Windows 3.1-tan's twin sister, although she looks the part. She didn't grow up with the rest of the Windows-tans, but was instead part of the Chinese language Windows branch; contact between the two branches was limited for security reasons.

Because of her distant upbringing and her life as a wanderer, a lot of the 'Windows-tans' she meets are malicious bootleg-tans, and she is unaware that over half of her real sisters/step-sisters exist at all. Likewise, most of the (real) Windows-tans are unaware of her existence.

Her years as a wanderer, and experience fighting malware-tans have turned her into a tough and skilled survivalist who takes a lot of pride in her skills.

Family and relationships

The wanderer Windows-tans

She is well acquainted with them, the first one she befriended was Windows 97-tan. It took her years to trust 95 OSR 2.1-tan and 2.5-tan, but now they are two of her closest relatives.

Windows 1.0 and Windows 2.0

She thinks they are bootleg OS-tans since she had forgotten about their existence for years, but knows they aren't malicious in the least bit and has become friends with them. Because of them, she visits the Binteeji Renmei.

The rest of the Windows Family

Because it's hard for her to tell family and foe apart from all of her fights against bootleg OS-tans, she is reluctant to meet the other Windows-tans. Of them, she knows that it was 95-tan that rendered her branch obsolete, and led to her faction's destruction. However, she doesn't have ill thoughts towards her, and saw herself as a necessary casualty for a consolidated and more efficient Windows empire.

Macintosh System 3.4-tan and Commodore 65-tan

She became friends with these two during her early experiences as a wanderer, they are now two of her closest friends and this trio is usually seen together in their adventures. At first she was hostile towards them because they met during the OS Wars, and 3.2-tan was desperate to fight any enemy to prove her worth to the rest of her family. She became friends with them after they saved her from a malware-tan attack.
