If you really think you need to get used to the interface in Win2K,
you can switch XP to use the Classic Style desktop theme instead of
the XP style. But you shouldn't find that the OSs are all that
different in terms of running applications. As John says, networking
is a little different, and device driver support is also a little
different. Both use the Win32 kernel, though, so the differences
aren't nearly so large as moving back to, say, Win98.
Until next time...
