Wubuntu – New Linux Distro looks like Windows 10 / Windows 11

For users switching from Microsoft Windows, there’s now a new Linux Distribution with default theme looks like Windows 10 and/or Windows 11.

It’s Wubuntu (Windows Ubuntu), based on Ubuntu.

It so far includes 2 versions based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. One with Windows 11 theme on KDE Plasma 5 desktop, and another with Windows 10 theme on Cinnamon desktop.

Wubuntu with Windows 11 Theme

Besides the default Windows style theme, it also includes some Windows apps, such as Edge browser, Copilot (Microsoft AI), OneDrive, PowerShell, Teams. And, it ships with PowerToys with Android support, and Wine by default for running Windows apps/games.

Wubuntu does not require TPM, secure boot or any other hardware requirements for its operation. And, it’s available in two editions: free edition and professional edition (cost $35 for a license). But, there’s so far no information about what’s difference between them.

NOTE: Wubuntu is a new project, but there’s so far no information about the developer team. It’s better to try it in virtual machine before installing in real machine.
