Disclaimer, I've barely used XFCE and then only from a Morphix CD.  My
first impression was that XFCE would be very foreign to someone used to
Windows.  I would recommend IceWM with simple thme like Nice or Blue
Curve for someone used to Windows.  The hot-keys are largely the same
as is the look and fell although it can be themed wildly.  It's also
quite light-weight and works well on a slower box.
