Nix Bellevue is the personification of Xenix, Unix distribution first announced by Microsoft on August 25, 1980. This operating system was the predecessor to MS-DOS and eventually Windows despite its obscure history.

Character

A cool-headed yet rebellious programmer and mail carrier from Logiciel. She finds routines tedious despite its comfort, and prefers using her cleverness and street-smarts to tinker with codes and construct mechanical installations.

However, she began to take interest in idol singers and admired their dynamic performances, and aimed to become one as well...

Trivia

  • Nix's color palette references Xenix's software box[1], user interface, and floppy disk sleeves[2]. Additionally, her predominantly blue and purple cosmic theme is based on a Unix World issue from 1985 [3].
  • Xenix was a popular Unix distribution in the 1980s, which also include uses in SDF Public Access Unix System[4], which name references SDF Macross.
    • One of SDF Macross' famous characters is Lynn Minmay, one of the first anime idols, which reflects Nix's interest in idols and becoming one.
  • Nix's job as a mail carrier in Logiciel was based on how Xenix was used in Microsoft's mail servers [5] until migrating to Exchange Server.
  • Nix's rebellious side is based on Xenix's features, which deviated from the Unix philosophy of modularity.
    • Xenix is also considered a separate Unix distribution, neither belonging to System V or BSD branch.[6]
