Microsoft’s efforts to hawk Windows to otaku using the power of moe look to have reached their zenith with Windows 7’s Madobe Nanami, and quite possibly their nadir with the pair of generic ‘blobs trotted out to support sales of Windows 8, apparently the most loathed Windows OS since Vista.
Microsoft Taiwan’s Silverlight mascot Hikaru returns to wish benighted users of Microsoft’s Flash clone a merry Christmas – complete with gorgeous wallpapers.

I use a 40" LCD TV as monitor, his default res is 1920x1080, btw it's called the FULLHD res, and it is a 16:9 standard. 1920x1200 isn't standard aspect ratio, and make all thinner or taller.... More
Official Windows 7 mascot Nanami Madobe has appeared in her own anime, exhorting people to build their own PC (naturally enough a boxy little Windows media centre PC).
The Japanese release of Windows 7 has seen OS-tan fans go wild over the highly appealing official Windows 7 mascot Nanami Madobe, who appears in the high resolution and high quality wallpapers included here.
The glittering Japanese release of Windows 7 has been set awry by the pathetic failure of the operating system’s touchscreen capability on prime morning television:

It lacks loads of stuff. For all the huge bloat, no decent media player (mkv support etc), no music player, no normal browser, have to pay extra for decent office software, etc. etc. Wasn't the whole... More

Win7 is OK, but I hate the fact that it lacks a decent network browser. You can't even see computers on the network by Workgroup which makes it quite useless when I'm working.... More
Users of Windows 7 in Japan will receive a new theme that is voiced by popular seiyuu idol, Mizuki Nana, along with an officially sanctioned OS-tan, Nanami Madobe.
Cosplayer Ayaka here portrays 2k-tan, the moe anthropomorphisation of relatively beloved operating system Windows 2000, in erotic fashion, complete with cleavage, T-back and gravure pouting…
The sordid details of the case of an otaku, Takanori Hoshijima, who obsessed over the prospect of creating a sex slave, and then attempted to carry out this deranged plan by kidnapping and violating a lady into submission, instead botching it and murdering and dismembering her, made much of his otaku proclivities.
He was said to play eroge constantly and even to have published his own doujinshi, under the title of “Masa ni Gaidou” – “Truly Depraved”.
The cover to the doujinshi, a volume focusing on the violation and bondage of an OS-tan, is visible above, as it is still listed (but out of stock) in certain online retailers. The author is listed as 寝ろ / Nero (Sleep!).
A gallery of objects curiously rendered into moe female characters. Rather purely exploring than the usual military or software themes, here we also see anthropomorphised food, coins, cigarettes and mobile phones, along with a great deal of other odd creations.
Eraser-tan and Derringer-tan struck me as rather amusing, along with Nvidia-tan…

Why doesn't anyone make ipod or mac tans?... More
I came across a very nice collection of OS-tan images here and here, the best I’ve seen, and I’ve taken the liberty of mirroring the most interesting below (some are wallpaper sized). The kind treatment given to Windows 95 seems a little inexplicable now, but I suppose that is the effect of time. I certainly approve of the Windows 2000 adulation though – as fine a Windows OS as could be, for its time. Vista makes me laugh, but then so does the OS.
If you’re not familiar with OS-tan, these are attempts to anthropomorphise the features of various operating systems (mostly Windows) using anime styled characters; some of them are, in my opinion, very witty, and the vast majority are quite cute or sexy.
