Windows 10 made a revolution after causing a lot of noise in the tech world for Microsoft once again, how Windows XP & Windows 7 made it. Many people loved the Windows 10 graphical interface is very pretty & looking good, and now it’s available for Linux computers .
It’s support all the major Linux Desktop Environment such as Unity, Cinnamon Gnome, XFCE, Mate, OpenBox, LXDE, GTK 3.x & KDE Plasma 5 but causing some issues on GNOME 3, i advise users to don’t use on Gnome Environment and much suitable for Cinnamon & XFCE.
Two variant available Light & Dark both are good and option is your whichever you want you can use. We know lot of themes are available then why ? Windows theme & icon for Linux. Its purely targeting new users who’s migrating from Windows to Linux.
