Changes[edit | edit source]

  • This version introduces the Luna theme, which is very similar to its Windows XP counterpart, but only applies to the windows, as Start menu and Taskbar are not affected from the theme. Also, unlike XP, only the blue variant is available.
  • "My Computer" has been renamed to "My Device", alongside with a new icon.
