It's not really a "linux" thing, it's more of a "desktop environment" thing

You can make linux look and act like windows really closely with the desktop enviorment XFCE or KDE, It's like windows, but with a better settings menu that actually is laid out well.
I'm just running a tiling window manager (called i3), It's basically a desktop where you don't have to use the mouse to navigate anything (except programs that use the mouse of course).
I also don't recommend running a tiling window manager if you're not doing terminal heavy stuff and/or aren't doing server/network management or software development.

r/unixporn is a really neat place to check out if you want to see a lot of other desktop environments. I mean, when it's open source, the environment is basically 100% customization.

KDE is really pretty looking and its very customizable I usually use a mate styled layout(two panels one on top and one on the bottom).
I would switch back to linux if the broadcom drivers didn't suck(b43-fwcutter), WiFi signal is so inconsistent and doesn't work half the time so old macs are terrible on Linux due to the lack of good wifi drivers

I completely replaced my windows shell with something called sharpenviro (which is very customizable) and it works great
