On hardware XP runs on, that may be a valid assessment.  But what
remaining hardware XP runs on is rapidly going the way of the dodo.
(Let's not even bother talking about WinXP 64-bit.  It sucked donkey balls.)

My experience was that the Win7 UI layer needs a couple of third-party
fixes like ShellFolderFix and a little bit of quality time with a 2x4 to
beat it into submission, and once that is done Win7 works very well,
with the proviso that a number of important features (including the
included backup program) are deliberately crippled in Home versions.
