I personally don't like distros that pretend to be a better Windows. While it works for that game you tried and your friend was able to install a printer, you will run into serious problems when you begin to recommend that for everyone. Not all Windows games or applications will run with Wine, and not all printers are Linux compatible, especially when you are using the 64 bit version (why is there no 32 bit version of JULinux 9?). Then it is up to you to explain why it doesn't work, why stuff on the command-line has to be done (and how to do it), and why the user not simply can use the Windows drivers on the CD that came with the hardware, just because it has to work like Windows if it looks like Windows.
I think that those users sooner or later simply will come to the wrong conclusion that Linux is only a crappy and not even compatible version of Windows and ditch it.
You may be should read the Linux is NOT Windows-article, link in my signature.
