Other notes, on Windows Vista and 7

There are no bios for Windows Vista-tan, nor Windows 7-tan, since although they're acknowledged as part of the Windows Family, there's really no consensus to their designs, nor characterizations for either of them since both of them have so many different interpretations.

For Windows Vista, the Vista-tan design that comes the closest is the "Vistake" design, and for Windows 7, the closest 7-tan design is Nanami.
