About the Windows 10 themes
So, it's been 3 months since we started this project, and it's been a lot of work (have a look at the changelog if you're not convinced)! So we decided to release a little more info about this theme that is growing very popular (almost 40K downloads).
1) It's been included in some Linux distros
Yes, due to it's ressemblance to Windows 10 it has been integrated with the Linux Distributions AnemOS and FerenOS (it's seen in a system screenshot). We value the efforts the developers put in making Linux more accessible to the masses and are glad to contribute to their efforts.
2) It's been widely talked about
Since we began analysing traffic to our website, we found out that quite a few webpages had talked about this theme : aside from our pages @ gnome and xfce-look, linuxadictos.com, tuxdiary.com, sempreupdate.org, lemondedestuts.org and nosolounix.com, as well as a link from linux.softpedia.com have furnished a lot of views to, mainly, the Windows 10 theme download page.
3) Video content is already out
Being reviewed helps the visibility of the theme, so it's kind of a good thing.

According to a poll from OMG! Ubuntu, our Windows 10 Cinnamon theme got voted among the top 5 best Cinnamon themes. Have a look at the article to know more.
And now, the info we promised :
The theme started when I started with a little project around September 5th, 2015. My purpose was to build a custom Windows 10 theme based on one of my previous themes, the B00merang-Glass theme, from which this group took it's name. So after having kind of finished, I released it, but I wanted a dark theme to use at night, so on Version 0.3 I added a dark variant.
So, that's the theme's story in short words.
