Default Linuxfx/Winfx - Linux distro that looks and functions exactly like Win10

Quote:
The Linuxfx / Windowsfx project was developed to help Microsoft © Windows® users migrate directly to Linux, taking advantage of their entire learning curve. Taking advantage of hardware that does not support the newest version of Microsoft © Windows® is also a Linuxfx policy, as well as providing support for the network, Active Directory, .exe and .msi programs, safe browsing and virus protection. Using Linuxfx / Windowsfx on your computer, you will have a fast system, which consumes little memory and is immune to viruses developed for the Microsoft © Windows® platform.

@George.J - have you tried it some?

Looks i never really cared for but hey!
If some Win user wants to keep that familiar feeling, why not?!
Does seem closer to Win than Makulu.

Not yet, but the video below sold me. It shows the extreme pain that the developers went through to make the distro's look and feel and the way it works exactly like Windows 10. It's like you get the best of both world's. Also it's great for anyone who decides the make the big transition.

Might look pretty overall but in common with some other Cinnamon desktops the font rendering is terrible. I couldn't use this for longer than a few minutes.
