Windowsfx Linux Distro That Mimics Windows 11


Recommended Posts

From Windowsfx is the Linux distribution Windows users have been looking for:

Over the past 20 or so years, there always seems to be that one distribution everyone claims is the best to help Windows users transition to Linux. Most often those distributions are nothing more than Linux with a desktop that looks like Windows. Sometimes they do a decent job of mimicking Windows and sometimes not.

But every so often something special pops up, a distribution that goes well beyond that extra mile to make Windows users feel right at home with Linux. Such is the case with Windowsfx. This Linux distribution is far from just a UI tweak to resemble another OS, it’s perfectly tuned for Windows users. It looks like Windows 11, and it behaves like Windows 11… only it’s Linux. For certain users, Windowsfx will be the absolute best of both worlds.


Windowsfx includes Android app support and pre-installed Microsoft applications such as Microsoft Edge, Teams, Skype, PowerShell, Office Online, and OneDrive.

Had a look at the video demo and it certainly looks darn slick. Price has gone up to $35 which is a lot cheaper than W11. Looking at it I am guessing that to be very useful you would have to buy the paid for version.

Not really a fan of paid for os's but a lot of work has been put into this and folk have to eat. With 1.5 million downloads if only 1% converts to the paid for version they are on to a winner.

Well windows 11 is free if your computer came with Windows (any version).  Download Windows 10 or 11 for free from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows11 and it will activate via the license assigned to your machine. If your machine came with Windows 7 or 10 Pro, you end up with the windows 11 Pro version.
