Kali Undercover

As we all know that the environment changes day by day, so they thought they would take a side step and do something for fun to all people. A person named Robert, who leads the penetration testing team of development of Kali, he is suggested about the Kali theme that looks like Windows as a casual view, they have created the Kali Undercover theme.

Let us assume that we are work in a public place, hacking away, and we might not want the distinctive Kali Dragon for everyone to see and wonder what if it is we who are doing. So, they made a little script that will change our Kali theme to look like a default Windows installation. That's the way by which we can work a bit more incognito. If after we are done and in a more private place, run that script again and we will switch back to our Kali theme. Its like a magic for us.
