By default, the XP environment looks like something designed by PeeWee
Herman. But there is a way to configure the OS to display the windows
and Taskbar in a more traditional method (that is, without manually
redesigning every friggin object).

So it is possible that the end-user's OS environment will look very much
like the W2000 environment. You could use use those screen caps and get
away with it.
