It lacks integration

Even though it might look like Windows, I doubt Windows emigrants will enjoy using it.

As stated, it is only a window manager, and so it has no desktop icons. That also means it doesn't have drag-n-drop nor does it have a built-in file manager (correct me if I'm wrong here).

It may be good for old machines, but what Windows emigrants really need is an explorer-like shell, and I have yet to see one.
