  1. It will work with it enabled. If you want DWM off, you also can do it and Classic theme can work both ways.
  2. If you disable DWN you have tearing.
  3. There is no tearing of corruption on Win 8. Unless you specifically disable DWM or you use Win 7.
  4. What about adding the Virtual Desktop Manager? It is designed for WinXP, but maybe can work on Win2000 as well. go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=211482
  5. You can get rid of charms by renaming two dlls.

    AFAIK, there is a way to entirely remove the "webby" part of the UI from Win2k/xp. There was a guide on the Internet. The UI (Explorer) would be exactly as on WinNT.

    There are people who still run Win2k. I do not know why one would want to run WinNT if running Win2k is possible.

    Your distro does not allow to install several desktops?

    Technically, KDE3 is available for latest openSUSE release, and MAYBE will be available for a few next ones. I do not use Linux any more. Yes, under Gates the doctine was mostly of not removing any features and functions. Only adding newer ones as an option. Windows XP was the first Windows version that featured removal or deprecation of some functions. But that was not a major thing. But on Linux things are much worse. On Windows they do not as often as on Linux throw away toolkits. Now Nadella strives to push his Metro and called the Win32 apps "legacy" but I doubt he will succeed in killing Win32 (or that would be instant death of Microsoft). Previously they also dropped Win16 (while it is still supported on some Windows versions). But on Linux they replace toolkits every 3-4 years, with all software written in those toolkits scrapped as well, if not rewritten by the authors. That's why, Windows 10 is Linuxization of Windows - various toolkits, various styles in every application, constant beta with releases every half a year which do not fix bugs. Hardware that stops working after update and you always wait for a next update with a fix. Something like Ubuntu (the worst Linux distro).

    No longer. Windows is more customizable, and technically better in any respect. It also keeps binary compatibility with software for a longer time. Definitely. Xfce and Lxde are just students' graduation projects, no more, in comparison. I do not know how people are using them. The usable desktops were killed when Nadella-kind guys came in and said everything done before them was wrong, desktop is dying, user is stupid and does not need customizability and they know better.

    In Linux it is all the same, they are throwing away all customizations, good old interfaces and going touch-friendly. Since 2008 I maintained good old KDE3 that was scrapped but finally I am fed and bored with those destructors. KDE3 is analog of XP in Linux world, and KDE2 in my opinion was even better (analog of Win2000). Since then they pushed for xaml-based interface known as "Plasma" (analog of Metro) and in Gnome world similar things happened (they went touch and abolished the idea of desktop, start meny, tray). That lead to multiple forks and re-creations of Gnome2 and a fork of KDE3, but all based on older toolkits that are going or already dropped from all distros. And there are no resources to port them on newer toolkits that are changing too fast anyway and look worse and more gigantic each time.

    They did exactly that with Start menu and it worked.
  13. This is sad. At least on my Win 8.1 it works well. So maybe it deserves inclusion into the list of updates for Windows XP? It was removed from the MS site and I had hard time finding its version in my language (there are different versions for different languages). Only found it on some totally third-party site, even not in Web Archive.
  14. What about adding the Microsoft's Calculator Plus?
  15. You should check task properties. By default new tasks in Windows have attribute "run only when connected to electricity network", you should uncheck that.
