Well this is not as much of an opinion as it is a simple statement. When I first came into the linux world I tried several distros as a dual boot set-up, but kept going back to Windows to get things done. Then after trying Linux Mint, which is an enhanced version of Ubuntu, it finally stuck and I never looked back.

If you want to be able to use most of the cool freeware you find on this site, and don't want to dual boot, or run a virtual machine, etc. , you should have no problem staying with XP, as Microsoft will continue to roll out security updates until 4/8/2014. Some have surmised that this date may be extended because of Win 7's "XP mode" still needing support, so we will see.
The smallest good deed is better than the greatest intention.
