You know that stupid aesthetic that tries to evoke late 90's and early 00's technology? The one with all the Windows 9x & XP things, Internet Explorer toolbars, MS Paint artwork, Geocities web-design, off-white plastic computer parts and what have you?
It's getting very popular now among a lot of a young people who were still inside their dad's ballsacks during that time.

In any case, I think that the perfect name for this aesthetic is Pentiumcore.
First, because it evokes the same basic structure as "hardcore" and "metalcore".
Second, it's a clever wordplay because Pentium processors have cores.
Please be sure to drop the word "Pentiumcore" the next time you see this aesthetic. That way, we can have the word conquer the earth.

Celeron is much better than Pentium for this

I like the "simplicity" and isolation of computers, but other than that there isn't much to miss.
Now its become a contest to see how much we can integrate computers into our lives.

Anyways I just call these people posers or people stuck in the past.

Tumblr always finds a way to ruin everything. This is just another case of kids being fascinated with the past, and while that's fine, they will of course make asses of themselves and think it's actually okay to use Windows XP as a mainline operating system, not even knowing the security risks. Also the "core" meme got old 15 years ago, aesthetics are fine but why merchandise and parade the shit out of something that should stay niche?

I like this "aesthetic" but I was actually live and self-aware when this shit was in use. The vaporwave and 90s/00s web aesthetic is really cool looking and nostalgic.

However I think you are right, most of the people talking about it online never actually experienced it.
