In windows, want to install a program? Easy, there is one way to do it. Until Linux can do this, there is no way it will be easier to use.
As an administrator of both and having a preference towards Linux, I am not biased in saying this, but Windows is easier to teach. Windows is easier to learn. Windows is more user friendly in a corporate environment.
You're absolutely right. While Linux has made leaps and bounds, its still not as easy to most as Windows. Download, double click the exe. Make a sandwich. Done. The software center in Ubuntu is a great start, but not everything is in there.
