As Windows 95 is considered to be the oldest of the modern bit Windows operating systems, it is usually represented as a traditional lady from the early modern era of Japan. The concept of the OS- tan is reported to have begun as a personification of the common perception of Windows Me as unstable and prone to frequent crashes. She wears a dress made out of the new Windows logo, with long white sleeves and a bow. Similar to Vista’s release, there seemed to be a bit of a boss-rush of -tans competing for canonism. She was named for 7’s codename, Vienna, and was used as a placeholder while the community waited for the OS’s release. Although it was largely believed that Nanami was official, it was revealed later on that she was designed by artist Wakaba and made by Windows 7 Mania owned by Techno Alliance Corp. It built off of many of the same features introduced in Windows Vista , upgrading them and improving them to be more stable.

The character was designed by Wakaba. Though Nanami is the generally accepted representation of Windows 7, there are other 7-tans out there, mostly made by the Futaba community. Although a few variants exist, the most common operating system represented is Windows Professional. Archived from the original on Retrieved 4 June Other editions include a Memorial Pack version without voice, theme pack, stickers units ; a bit Windows Memorial Pack version with a Sculpt Mobile Mouse with Nanami decor units.
Notable ones include a girl in her late teens with long, ice-blue hair and a schoolgirl-style outfit. The particular shade of blue used in most drawings is similar to the default Windows desktop color.
Windows 7 also introduced multi-touch support, an updated shell, and the HomeGroup networking system. She has a serious-but-sweet manner, dresses in bright blue office attire and appears to be in her late-twenties.
The OS- tan are not an original concept and are pre-dated by Toy’s iMac Girl, who was featured on a series of desktops released between August and March The concept of the OS- tan is reported to have begun as a personification of the common perception of Windows Me as unstable and prone to frequent crashes.
Her personal traits are being an excellent student, and expanding her knowledge on technology. The design of ME- tanthe personification of Windows Meis very much in line with the Japanese concept of kawaii or cuteness.
The video was presented as the opening to Microsoft’s keynote on the second day of Windows Developer Days in Japan. The Document Foundation Blog. The Japanese Windows 8.
The Windows 98 Second Edition OS- tan is similar in appearance, but wears a green sailor school uniform with the letters “SE” on the front. Her hair is curled into twindrills in the front, toward the bottom, and she wears hairclips on either side of her head that look like reddish bubbles with “7” inside. There also seems to be a more finalized version who has a hair colour similar to that of Vista wallpapers, with a range from light blue, to yellow, to green.
Given the small amount of art of this, they can also be disputed as cosplay pictures of the respective -tans rather than a variation of 7’s mascot. Madoe mascot was not officially madibe by mqdobe foundation but has developed a fandom on 8chan and reddit. Although it was largely believed that Nanami was official, it was revealed later on maeobe she was designed by artist Wakaba and made by Windows 7 Mania owned by Techno Alliance Corp.
Nana is a young girl with a high-pitched, childish voice, playful demeanor, and brown hair done up in a fluffy, cute ponytail. The OS- tan representative of the original release of Windows 98 is shown in a white and blue uniform that includes the Windows logo as part of a neck tie, navy blue hair, and a “98” hair clip.
The personifications as a whole are commonly simply called mascots or mascot characters, and as such the -tan suffix itself means nothing outside its role as an honorific and its implications of cuteness.

She wears a dress made out of the new Windows logo, with long white sleeves and a bow.
She is also occasionally depicted wielding a katana in an aggressive manner, symbolizing that it was with her generation of operating systems that Microsoft finally achieved full dominance of the personal computer market. Naami also wears a type of long coat which only covers her left and right sides which are transparent to imitate that of the Aero glass effect. A common costume design was a white and red sailor fuku and stockings.
It became something of a mini-meme to have pictures of the current -tans dressing up in only some tape over their bodies and some variations, depending on the -tan in the shape of a “7”, in the belief that they wanted to be 7-tan to gain a resurgence of popularity and maybe a second chance at being top dog.
