UbuntuBox: Worst Case Mod Ever, Hands Down

ubuntubox_1.jpg

At first glance, this “case mod”, if you can call it that, looked like the box I carried my belongings off to college with. Look a little deeper and you see that this box is actually a working computer.

The UbuntuBox has got to be the ugliest damn case mod of all time. Isn’t there some sort of reward for this? The creator of this horrendous masterpiece says that the computer houses the parts from an old Pentium 3 tower, running Linux Ubuntu.

  12. In one Word – AWESOME

  13. Case? You need a case? PPPPPFT…

    In my old place, we had “FRANKEN-PUTER”. It was various older computer parts all on top of a piece of wood under a table. The wood’s only there so that it wasn’t directly on the carpet.

  14. THATS AWESOME

  15. There’s a certain brilliance that radiates through that pile of shit, don’t you think? No? Oh…

  16. A friend of mine had his motherbord and other ‘puter parts lying loose in the windowsill for a year. Naturally, he was quick to close the window whenever it started to rain.

  17. At least u get plenty of space for air to circulate.

  18. Hilarious!

    Weird things is, there are people out there that would buy it.
