There was some usability study back in the day that concluded that the Linux desktop setups that looked like Windows were harder to use, because they set the wrong expectations.
Oh, I can believe that. In my case, I'm very lucky because my parents have never used Windows. I put them on Linux from Day 1.
And XFCE looks different enough from Windows that it's obvious that it isn't windows, while looking similar enough that a Windows user can get used to it in a few minutes.
