This question does not meet enough of our six guidelines for constructive subjective questions. All questions should be practical, answerable, and of some educational value to the greater community. Chatty, open-ended discussion questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
Three other people who are not Anna Lear voted to close the question because it's not constructive, and it has nothing to do with your earlier comment (although we are all curious and bemused by what you meant by that).
The question is too open-ended: you haven't provided any context to frame the question nor any specific problem that someone can help you solve. Answerers are forced to guess at what consequences they can dream up related to using Windows XP that may or may not be relevant to your circumstances.
Tell us why you're considering sticking with Windows XP. What programming problem do you have that's got you trying to hold onto the ghosts of Windows past? What specifically about Windows XP going the way of the dinosaurs has you concerned? Give us something about what you're trying to do to work with and provide an actual, correct answer.
