Ok, so here's my main question: Can I use my themes I have for StyleXP with those 3rd party apps on WIn2k?

Most likely not. You're probably going to have to use Window Blinds (yuck) to get theme support for 2k.

The verdict (applies to me):

SP3 causes NO problems except for ONE:

The refresh-rate bug is NOT, repeat NOT fixed.

This really pisses me off.

No unfortunately.

However there are some good themes for those third party programs out there. The program I use to theme Win2k is called WindowBlinds. It's made by a company called Stardock and it's cheap too (like 19 dollars).

You can find themes for it at places like Deviant Art and Skinz or even at the Stardock website.

Stardock also makes other programs that allow you to change the default system icons (like the icons used for the different folder types), change the way windows appear on screen (transparency anyone?....even have windows fade in when they appear, instead of just 'popping' up). and even change the way the desktop works.

Check out their site, they have some cool sh*t there.

Here's a desktop that was made using their apps. This is the ENTIRE desktop (taskbar, system tray and all that have been changed/modified).
