Wich I answered ?
Dibya you're too harsh
but as time goes by you will have to switch at some point
if you have any machine bought in 2007 it will run NT 6 just fine
comparing to todays PC's mine is junk, but I'm switching to x64 win7 soon, coz of RAM, as stupid browsers need RAAAAAAM
XP speed vs 7 ?, maybe 1 second
in some cases - this goes on productivity more, w7 is faster as you can switch via favorites directly to given folders
xp, you'd have to stiff shortcuts to quick launch toolbar or some other crappy place for that...
not to mention taskbar being plagued by buttons too easily
3 GB OS is not that big now... s*** even hard disks from 2000 were 50 GB, now you can get cheap 500 GB
so space isn't issue, speed... just freaking defrag your disk
and sorry to others for going off topic
until i have knowledge i will never go from xp.
XP is not faster for 1 second but much more than that.
In my laptop(Compaq620) XP boots up in 16 Seconds and whrere Windows 7 takes 1min 67Sec although more softwares are installed in XP partition (Donot belive me I can show you)
In real life if you compared Rendering Softs, 3dMAX,MAYA Runs far more faster on XP .
I am already there is a patch for XP namely fix128 which can make 32bit XP Recognize and use 128GB RAM with PAE no problem founds till now those are found with old 64G Patches.
Now come to productivity everyone knows XP is userfriendly and much more productive OS . If you ever used corporate networks, You can found XP printing , coping , using every thing instantly where 7 takes much times.
Terminal Server of XP is far better than windows 7 , it run very smooth if 10 RDC machines are connected even with a old p4 pc sameway Win7 RDC performances lags behinds even if you use i5 pc as your server.
Now come to secuirity , win7 and higher contain NSA Backdoors .
If recently a goverment office near my house got infected with CRyptologers where 7 / 8 computers got infected but nothing happened with XP ones.
I have talked many secuirity exsperts from well known institution and even some black hats who currently works in a company .They told you are much safer using 2k\XP\2k3 rather using vista\7\8.1\10.
Even Vista Sp2 performs better than your windows 7 sp1 , donot belive me run yourself pasmark.
Being uptodate with technology is good but Remember old is always Gold.
Even if i accept anything as my second most favoured os after XP that will be 8.1 or Ubuntu.
In 2019 , XP will be Bug free OS in the world due to about 20yrs of Patches and 99.99% of ExploitKits will not do anthing.
I am using XP with out Any AV for one year still i not got any virus.
I donot why? you guys are telling XP bad.
you are concerned about secuirity , then MS is putting some nice spyware in your 7/8.1 pc through updates and windows 10 comes inbuilt . If you are talking about memory manager Xp uses a server standard memory manager and xp even being a 32bit os can adress 128Gb ram in PAE(If you are using Sp2/sp3 , you need a patch namely fix128). XP is lighweight and doesnot have crap like mordern windows . MS is making there every version based on Vista after xp , every one know how? miserable is vista . Corporate networking, SQL performance of xp is far higher than mordern os , donot believe me do some bench mark or see here :: http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10539
Now came to ram, XP use less than half of resoarce what your windows 7/8.1/10 uses so wasting your ram and cpu is good , you can have that for games
Telling Newer os is safer read the following

http://www.techtimes.com/articles/6906/ ... iruses.htm
I belive windows 8 wined there due to latest defender same way we can have a good much better AV software
If you guys like bloatwares then keep it
Last of all friends what wrong in using XP ?
Some guys there at stackExchange saying useless thinks about XP
I really donot know from where they came from?
They are saying XP is slower than new windows like10
onething more whole internet is full of talks that XPx64 is a bad os but i used once in my pc with 5eraphs update pack , it is having ground breaking stability and quite impossible to crash even much faster than vistax64/7x64 and 8.1x64
Believe or donot believe WIndows XP and Server 2003 is gold standard Operating System.
you can even see here in real life xp is more secure http://www.xpforums.com/xp-security-story-t932767.html
Tell me friends how? many of you all used AV spftware in 2006/7 and before that with XP
