Well, to be fair, XP is a lot more mature


Is this for a gaming PC? Link the specs you're going to use with Windows XP?

It is being discontinued for sure. Keep in mind the Directx 11 games won't run on XP.


Some games don't even support 32 bit now.

I would advise windows 7, as a huge XP fan, moving to 7 was a positive experience. Also stay far far.... far... FAR FAR FAR away from Windows 8, it is god awful.

Windows XP was great for its time, but comon... it came out in 2001.

have fun being able to use only 3.25 gbs of ram, and a lot of software no longer support XP, it was an awesome OS indeed, but it's time to move on
