XP will be dead soon might as well move on to another os. As I understand it there won't be any browser support soon. I think linux would be better than Windows 7 but it's not for everyone. If you decide to do this just go over to the linux support page here. If you want fast and secure linux will be better than windows 7. Ubuntu is not for me either and there are other OS's that more resemble windows if you want to give it a go. Once you get all set up with xp then you will have a lot invested and will have to move anyhow. M.S. dosen't want you using it anymore and vendors won't keep software around for it for to long. A lot of us still have it but if you don't might as well move on. I lost it on one pc and just decided to forget it and all the headaches with it. Take a look in the malware section on xp machines.
Sorry, I know that is not what you want to hear.
