Artistic Representation of Linux Distributions

Posted by jun auza On 1/10/2009
If you sometimes wish that your favorite Linux distro should have a mascot, then you may like what I’m about to show you. But before that, let me give you a short intro.

Some of you may have heard of the "OS-tan". To those who haven’t, here’s a description taken from its wiki page:

The OS-tans are an Internet phenomenon that started on Futaba Channel. The OS-tan or simply OS Girls are the personification of several operating systems by various amateur Japanese artists. Although a pure fan creation, the appearance of each OS Girl is generally consistent across artists. The OS Girls are typically depicted as women and usually depicted as sisters of varying ages.

Here are some examples:

Windows Vista (Vista-tan):

Mac OS X Leopard (Leopard-tan):

Linux (Linux-tan):

An Italian graphic artist named Francesca Poppi (also known as juzo-kun) created some amazing OS-tans that portrayed various Linux distributions including Fedora, Ubuntu, and Gentoo among others.

From juzo-kun’s Deviantart page, I took some of her distro OS-tans so that I could show them here.

P.S. juzo-kun also created this:
