Nanami Madobe (Japanese: 窓辺ななみ, Madobe Nanami) is an OS-tan that personifies Windows 7.


Her first formal mention was in an Akiba-PC article[1] from September 24 2009[2], announcing that a limited bundle, which includes a disc containing wallpapers and system sounds featuring her, came with 7,777 preordered copies of Windows 7 Ultimate. However, a Twitter account for her was already created on September 14 2009[3], tweeting news related to Windows 7[4].


Nanami was born on April 6[5], the day her father was setting up Windows 3.1. She is currently in her first year of college[6]. Her family consists of her parents, an older brother, and an older sister. Both her father and brother are PC junkies. She is a cheerful person with a bit of a screwed-up side. When Windows 7 was released, her best friend asked her to work part-time at a parts store, even though she is not used to it[7].
