Who are these “sisters”?

Hint: This girl is one of their enemies

Answer:

These are OS-tans. Operating systems depicted as young anime women. It started off with drawing Windows ME as a fickle, confused girl. Went on to illustrate all other Windows versions and now we even have Ububtu-Tan.

There are a few non-girls like Dr.Norton (who is shamelessly peeking under XP,s skirt in the above pic :) ) who make appearances.

    These sisters are different OS’s depicted as ‘Manga’ :-) characters.

    From Wikipedia:
    “The OS-tans are the moe anthropomorphism/personification of several operating systems by various amateur Japanese artists. The OS-tans are typically depicted as women, with the OS-tans representative of Microsoft Windows operating systems usually depicted as sisters of varying ages.”

    Windows XP is the one holding her skirt.

    The OS-tan fansub series… depicts the Windows OS as a family of sisters, each more fickle and unstable than the other :)
