Please understand that the Windows users still on 7 are very likely to be quite averse to change. That means getting them to switch operating systems is also quite the challenge. Having a theme that apes the look of Windows 7 helps significantly with convincing them to switch to Linux.

Also IMHO casual consumers should be able to easily understand the concept of a desktop environment being separate from the underlying OS. Most of them are already exposed to Android, where the different manufacturer skins are analogous to DEs. Explain it to them like that and they'll get it fairly quickly; I've done that numerous times before and it has never failed yet.

I understand you but it looks like Unfair Use to me. Have you consulted https://ev.kde.org/?
