    Well to be sure, the particular Desktop Environments have more to do with the visual similarities than the distro. I can take pretty much any Desktop and make it look like Windows, with the exception of Gnome Shell.

    Now, out of the box; Zorin is by far the one that gets the most credit for comming out of the box looking as much like Windows as it can.

    Yea, it is pretty much a DE thing only...not really the Distro. Though some Distros are made for that purpose....but any distro and any DE can be tweaked to look like Windows. (Except Unity or Pantheon)

    PC-BSD is not Linux...and they just use KDE so anything using KDE could be put in the list if that is all the criteria that is needed.

    but anyway, I pretty much hate all distros/DEs/tweaks that try to immitate Windows. I am ok with Cinnamon because it is fully Linux but is friendly to the paradigm of Windows without trying to be a Windows immitator. Zorin is a bad goal in my opinion.

    I have seen some of these, they range from okay to meh.
    Best one on this list is zorin.

    Also, ReactOS is NOT Linux, it says it right there on their front page.

    To me, ChaletOS looks most like Windows, it is a new Distro though, and I haven't tried it yet.

    Tails doesn't not look like Windows really... its the classical gnome 2 look.
    Please exclude them from the list.
