Xfce "Xfce is just as customizable as KDE or GNOME, so I set myself a goal: make Xubuntu look like Windows Vista. Though you won't be told how to achieve the exact same end result, this guide provides comprehensive instructions helping you make Xubuntu look the way you want it to. In any case, I would certainly not recommend such a setup for someone new to Xubuntu. Xubuntu is different than Windows; making it look similar is only confusing."

Instead you should ask yourself why every gnu/linux desktop wants to look like windows

That is a very good question, has anyone thought about it seriously? Perhaps, there is something that MS does right and people like it or quickly get used to it...

Well, many people are more or less forced to get used to it, since it comes with their new computer, or they have to use it at their workplace. This does not necessarily mean that they wouldn't like, or be able to get used to other DEs.

Erm, says who?

Sure, every Linux DE has users who want to make it look like Windows. But I see no proof that this is a common overall aspiration for any Window Manager/DE.
