Best Answer

To install Pantheon DE on 16.10, run following command in order:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/os-patches
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/testing
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install elementary-theme elementary-icon-theme elementary-default-settings elementary-desktop

Various user reportedly has encountered couple of bugs, since this procedure will install the unstable version. Other than that, it's completely usable and working fine.
