Punkbuntu is a live Linux system that runs only on old hardware. Thorough tests determine during the boot-up process whether Punkbuntu will or will not work on your computer hardware. An example punk machine is comprised of following components: CPU: Pentium II 233, Memory: 64mb, video: S3 Trio 64, preferably no HDD! Punkbuntu is a critical statement on our gadget-driven world where faster release cycles of hardware are taken for granted and are exemplifying planned obsolescence at its best.
If your computer has been manufactured by Apple or is comprised of state-of-the-art hardware components you’ll be simply confronted by a message and a single interaction button. Once pressed it will automatically restart your computer. Nonetheless, your experience will be accompanied by the Sex Pistols playing in the background.
