Comment It's good enough, and Vista/7 just plain aren't (Score 1) 727

much better.

I use both XP and 7, and had used Vista before. I use XP on most of my virtuals. I like just about 4 new features.

1.) Pin app to taskbar.
2.) Shift Right click "Copy as Path". (very easy to retrofit).
3.) The improved "Search Programs and Files".
4.) "Real" x64 support. (WinXP x64 is much more of a edited Windows 2003 build and finding drivers for it is hard).

In fact, XP had no feature whatsoever over Win2K, but it did offer some big improvements for the corporate side of things just as (much better) WMI and GPO.
