98-tan (Japanese: 98たん, 98-tan), also known as Hacchan (はっちゃん), is an OS-tan that depicts Windows 98. She has a sister called Secchan, who represents Windows 98 SE.
98-tan has an appearance of a middle school-aged girl with short navy blue hair and a "98"-shaped hair ornament, along with blue eyes. She wears a white sleeveless shirt, long navy blue or black gloves, and a pleated miniskirt. Her original proposed design was a simple boxy figure, likely intended as a reference to "Vulcan" from the anime "Zatch Bell" (金色のガッシュ!!, Konjiki no Gash!!). Her current design eventually became accepted, although 98-tan is often depicted carrying the Vulcan box figure as either a toy, something she can go inside of to hide, or control as a mech.
Hacchan is a shy girl who uses the first person pronoun boku (ボク), which is considered unusual since the term is usually masculine. According to the @Wiki, she got a "Dark History" notebook (this is likely about history that is obscure, a term coined from "Turn A Gundam") from Digisama.
