Windows XP was dropped from even extended support by Microsoft on April 14, 2009, almost 10 years ago.


That tells you everything you need to know about the suitability of using Windows XP as a "general purpose" OS involving any connections to cyberspace.  Using unsupported OSes, particularly those years and years out of support, is never a good idea.

No never use XP in the modern age of the net.

Now in terms of reliable... well


Windows 7 is almost dead

Windows 8 sucks

Windows 8.1 is okay but not much better than 8

Windows 10 is actually pretty decent though I have my issues with it


There is also linux to consider as a alternative to XP

You know you want me baby!
