This is the new look desktop for the Raspberry Pi, the $35 credit card-sized computer that recently passed 10 million sales.

The changes to the Pi's official Raspbian operating system are primarily cosmetic, according to Simon Long, UX engineer at the Raspberry Pi Foundation. However, the revamp of the desktop for the Linux-based OS has also added a few new features and apps.

The PIXEL desktop will ship with the official release of Raspbian from today and is available here.
