Kali is a Linux distribution created for ethical hacking and penetration testing and is commonly used by researchers and red teamers to perform security tests against an organization.

Kali Linux added 'undercover' mode, impersonating Windows 10.

As most people are used to seeing Windows and macOS devices being used, it may look suspicious to see a user running Kali Linux with it's distinctive dragon logo and a Linux environment in an office lobby or other public setting.

With this in mind, in Kali Linux 2019.4 the developers created a new 'Undercover' mode that will make the desktop look similar to Windows 10, in order to draw less suspicion.

The script even hides Kali's dragon logo, explains a post on the Kali blog, so "you can work a bit more incognito.

After you are done and in a more private place, run the script again and you can switch back to your Kali theme.

Basically, what has been around for a long time under themes for Debian, Kali Linux has added to its distro.
