    It's always give and take. XP is now reduced to use of only a few browsers. For me it's Firefox (which I just detest), Mypal and Centaury. Mypal is not rendering some sites, and blocking images in others. Centaury screws up the sound in about half the videos I come across. Most of what I use XP for is exploring the net and watching TV shows, movies, YouTube vids, etc. Win 7 has access to many better browsers, including chrome/chromium derivatives, and the CA nazis embedded security certificates store can still be updated. On the other hand, all the Palladium/NGSCB corporate malware of Vista was carried over to Win 7, plus M$ is actively trying to port all its bigger/badder corporate malware in Win 8 & 10 to it via KB stealth-installs.
