Why copy, when it's so trivial to do better?

I would guess the point is to make people think twice about whether or not linux is a viable desktop option for normal people. Most people have only used windows boxes and even those at a beginner level. If you can configure linux to feel like windows then they will accept that linux CAN do what they want it to. They will likely be more accepting when a linux box isn't configured exactly as they are used to.
