    I am using this OS after dumping Windows 10, so far it is very good. The UI is very clean and easy to use. If you like to try a Linux Distro, try this OS. It is very good with a new desktop "Budgie".

    Looks much like Windows. Is the default Window ? Have you done any modification ?

    Yes, it looks similar to Windows but far better. This is not my desktop screenshot, but the original image from the official site. My desktop also looks the same :)

    Yes, if you want try the live version of this desktop by downloading the iso and writing it to an USB.

    Great to know that, as previously said. Try the live demo first and then do the switch. Or use Linux along with Windows as dual boot.

    Live demo is a boon in Linux. We could get the first-hand experience before committing.

    Yes, this way we don't make any change to Hard disk and files.

    Because all they have is one Windows version and all know how Windows works and look. Linux has lot of distros so it need to have live demo.

    That is true. If Windows has a live CD, people could have checked whether all drivers will work in that version. I had issues with Aero when upgrading to Windows 7. My printer does not work in Windows 10 and so on.

    I think we can find few information about the drivers, but we won't be able to check all the options like Printers and other devices.
