Personally, I think that this is a waste of resources. Rather than try to create a cheap knockoff of Windows, perhaps the better strategy would be to focus resources on making alternatives such as Linux better. After all, it's possible to run Windows apps under WINE or emulation (VMWare, etc) on other platforms. Why solidify Windows-esque OSes in the market, when you could be promoting 'nix alternatives?
