No, I don't think so. It was a mistake to let XP last so long without an update. In the computer world, things become obsolete in 18 months or less. Old OSes just hold back innovation. It's amazing that XP worked (and still works) so well for so long.

As far as Winamp & Milkdrop is concerned, people like us (and DrO) will find ways to keep them working long into the future.
