Windows XP is much less stable compared to Windows 8.

I don't mean to impede on your viewpoint; but I would have to say that, pretty objectively, both Windows 7 and Windows 8 are stabler than XP. Far more stable in fact. People can poop on Windows 8 all they want, it is rock solid in terms of stability and features.

Plus, IMO, one of the biggest problems with XP is drivers. Standardized drivers and an open ended driver sandbox in W7/W8 is soooooooooo nice compared to the XP days of crappy driver implementation and function. Don't even get me started on the driver situation in 95/98.

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

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