LinuxFX: it looks like Windows, but it’s not Windows


Today we will look at a somewhat controversial distribution. The attempt to imitate Windows reaches absurd proportions here. They even have the domain windowsfx.org. But there are many problems hidden behind it.

This article is more or less created as a continuation of my rescue mission, when an acquaintance of mine fell in love after watching a video and reading a superficial review. I had a hunch that it wouldn’t be so sweet, but in order to stop him, I had to try this system. I downloaded the system from the site project.

In addition, shortly after testing began, there were reports that the activation security was not quite right. There was a significant leak of user data of over 20,000 users. I found detailed information about the problem here. Attention, they are warnings. I definitely do not recommend activating and paying.

I usually use virtualization for testing – in this case VirtualBox. The system is distributed as live. This means that it will first run without installation, and only later is there an option to run the installation as a separate program.

Even after selecting the language, they appear to start Windows. The logo looks really interchangeable and it won’t be a coincidence.

I got into a live system. At first glance, it really is Windows. Oh well, the first step will be to increase the resolution so I can move around in it.

I won’t delay and will start installing right away. I’m installing in VBox so no serious damage can happen. The installer is a repainted Ubuntu installer. His behavior is identical.

Towards the end, the installation started behaving strangely. The virtual machine reduced the resolution and the installer switched to full screen mode.

After installing I was prompted to reboot. After the reboot, it was necessary to install the guest additions. Here everything went as expected. After another restart, it was already possible to dynamically change the screen resolution and, if necessary, enable sharing of the clipboard.
