After I stop shuddering at the idea of my computer looking like Windows... ;)
There are already several themes available that do just that.

I haven't tried the Windows 7 one at all, though I did try the Mac one (for fun) on Ubuntu 15.10 a while back - it's a pretty good look-alike IMHO and is widely recommended. That is, for folks who are after the Mac look.
If you decide to try either--make a backup first in case something goes wrong!
There are dozens or more Themes available. This is not the responsibility of Mint. Mint provides a great Desktop that works in a Linux way (that is better than Mac or Window$ IMHO)
