this perfectly looks like vista :)

except the icons. they look bad imho. konqueror is not as slick as explorer, and these yellow icons do look bad in a good theme.

and obviously original vista has different icons :)

The goal is to go away from windows, but most of people just know that their computers have something called "windows", full of viruses, security holes and license tied. Most of people knows too, that some icon open a word processor, other icon open a calculator, etc.
Well, in these scenes, you can find a lot of little and medium companies still using w98 without a good antivirus neither os updates or security protection.
For this companies i think this is a very good option to use linux, but it's very dificult to take the chance if you don't give them a similar environment.

It's to not scare people in the next cubicle over ;)

I know about that because I had to bring my laptop to work over the summer and scared a few inquisitive people silly when they looked over my shoulder and..."Hey! It's not Windows! What the $^%& is it?!"

Oh, no, IE is very bad, but unfortunately there are lots of websites and web apps that only run with IE.
I think that firefox is the best browser today.

Yes, but only from within a Windows install in a VMWare Player sandbox with a Linux host. And then as little as I have to because Konq and Firefox on Linux work awfully darn nicely.
