Any LinuX distribution with KDE as the window manager, looks like WINDOW$....
Linspire is the nearest one...but It's paid.

You might find Ultimate Edition - a Ubuntu based OS - worth a try. It's highly graphical and choose the most current revision. The graphics are very smooth but you'll need to check out the various options as there are many.
