Each has it's advocates, and which you run depends mostly on your computer specifications.
Each newer version of Windows requires more memory to run, since the code tends to become larger with each release (larger also means more bloated).
Each version has a certain life-cycle of support. Microsoft may issue critical patches for older versions, but in effect, only fully supports XP at this time. For example, it appears that the new version of Internet Explorer will only work in an XP environment; many third party applications will also require either XP or W2X versions.
These considerations, rather than which is evaluative "best" or different, seem to be more important.

Additionally, the original Win 98 was buggy enough that it didn't take long for MS to issue 98SE.

XP is probably a lot more stable, but also harder to repair when it does break. There are more niggling problems. XP also takes a lot more hardware to run well. It likes lots of memory.
