Time to forget this.    It is a semantic and religious battle
playing hair splitting games with words.    It is not a MS clone
but it is an MS replacement.   If you overwrite your MS-Win with
FreeBSD, it completely replaces it.   It will do everything you need
except look like MS-Win and people who are trying to get out of MS-land
are happy to find that to be true.    Give them a hand rather than
a kick in the face.
