Here’s a shoutout to my sister for whom all things creepily Japanese are like milk to a cup of tea. Emily, dude, check out the concept of OS-Tan, it’s sort of like fanfic as drawing for operating systems. Done by the Japanese. There are other bemused western descriptions but that wikipedia article is worryingly comprehensive, the sort of value add that only Wikipedia can provide. Anyway the bit I like the best is that the Linux one carries a spear, fair play you might say except that the spear has three flags attached. These flags are references, shout outs and general much respect being given to LILO, GRUB and GCC. Yes that’s right, Linux’s main weapon symbolises two bootloaders and a collection of compilers. Sw33t!
