## Minimalistic Linux distributions run fine on ten year old PCs.
It is 2017\. Pick an average PC from 2007 and install a minimal Linux based operating system. You will be able to do basic computing tasks (eg. surfing the web, reading E-Mails, listening to music, chatting) just like on an _expensive_ modern PC. You will even get security updates, so your old computer is protected, just like as a new one.

Great care has been taken to make pmbootstrap safe, as it will run on productive systems of postmarketOS developers. This is not the case for postmarketOS in its current proof-of-concept state (Weston runs as root, ...) so we must work on that before it can be used in real life.
