Windows 12 Lite
You might think that this is fake. Surprisingly, it is being sold in a local computer fair with the name of Windows 12 Lite and this OS isn’t actually developed by Microsoft and it is not related to Microsoft in any way. Instead, it is a Linux based OS that is modified to look like Windows 10 OS.
It is a Linux Kernel 4.8 based modified Operating System. It is made to look like Windows 10 by using dark theme, Windows 10 Wallpaper, and different icon packs.
It is stated that this Windows 12 lite will be three times faster than the Windows 10 Operating System. It also mentioned that it is a virus and Ransome free and provides 80,000+ from their software manager.
The makers also created a website that explains the installation process of Windows 12 Lite.
