AAbuntu renders the whole graphical appearance of the operating system into colourful ASCII code. It focuses exclusively on graphical representation by the means of characters rather than individual pixels. Through the abstraction of visual layers of the standard operating system AAbuntu uncovers new patterns of user interactions and enhances the perception for text-aficionados.
AAbuntu is a homage to all the netart projects done in 90s involving aalib; a library which turns any image into an ASCII artwork.
AAbuntu “down-samples” modern and fancy graphics back to puristic and classic text-mode. Yet, this obfuscating transformation is useful – it allows to run AAbuntu on outdated, underpowered/embedded computer hardware. As well it enables one to access full desktop environment via a faint remote connection.
