    Yup, but mostly it was the name that sounded like windows.
    Most of the graphical user interface packages ( including IBM's(?) non Linux OS2) looked like windows of their day.
    Most of the Linux packages look like windows, and as long as you don't need something that is not included in the distribution, works like windows.
    If any thing goes wrong, just do a fresh install ( like we used to do with windows)

    Better yet, just virtualize it. Or run a couple. If you need to wipe it, it takes no time at all to recreate the environment.

    I've used Ubuntu since 6.04 and Redhat before that for work and home. I bought VMware workstation for Linux and installed windows in it (currently Windows 10) to run those programs. VMware is pretty amazing and I really can't tell the difference between my machine and co-workers native Windows installs (for Autocad, etc). 95% of my computing is straight linux though. I started with HP/UX and when our software supplier decided to port to linux we went there and were really happy.
