DEKUVE brings you a macOS-inspired look based on Debian 11 and XFCE aimed at Windows and macOS users who want to switch to Linux.

Table of Contents


You can download DEKUVE from Sourceforge or from FOSS Torrents. The only version available at the time of writing this post is the one based on XFCE, but there is another version coming soon.

Once downloaded, you can copy it on a USB using a USB Imager Tool and boot from it. You can try DEKUVE without installing it on your computer.

It has an elegant design, similar to elementaryOS or other macOS-based desktops. Beautiful icons and a well-implemented dark theme (its light theme may need some improvements).
