Case Mod Backlash



NewsForge, broadcasting a press release:

Qli Technologies writes “Qli Linux Computers is proud to announce our newest product, dubbed “Pre-Modded” Linux Computers.

This begs the question: what are bleeding edge geeks to do now that case modding has gone mainstream?  You can buy pre-windowed cases at CompUSA or via mail order through major companies.  You can buy your computer with a cold cathode glow preinstalled.

I predict a back to basics push in the case modding community.  A beige-box grass-roots effort.  They’re going to do something with those old four foot high server cases.  They will be works of art, albeit minimalistic.

Zen and the art of computer case modding.
