Got a taste of XP when a roommate at summer camp had "Whistler" installed. Still necessary for some things (hard to believe!).
2000–2008
I've spent more time on XP than any other OS. Left the Windows world for OS X in 2008, though.
2000–2006
Just for the games.
2000–2006
I still have this in a VM "just in case," but hardly ever boot it. Haven't really tried any newer Windows.

Main OS in the years between ME and my move to Linux full-time; ran my dedicated gaming PCs after I moved to OS X. Kept using it through Vista and into the early Win7 days because, well, why upgrade? Also useful on VMs in environments where one needs Windows software like IE, Exchange or WinOffice.
2001–
This was my main OS for the majority of my computing career.

Existed only on a second partition or as a virtual machine.

Still have it in virtualbox for testing, or for configuring Dell servers via DRAC :-(

My desktop OS for some of these years, and eventually relegated to just games.
2002–2009
My work environment for years. In 2007 it became just for games. After 2008 it became just for World of Warcraft. In 2009 I dropped that game and started my life over partly because others did not drop the game.
2002–
Still running on an older box w/legacy software for backwards compatibility
2002–2005
2002–
First introduced on my Dell laptop and have been using it ever since on PCs that I work on, both my desktop at home and at work. Never have had Vista+ installed on any of my machines. XP is a great operating system.
2002–
2002
Only used XP briefly when my Win2000 installation failed. The Whistler beta struck me as being far superior than the RTM, so I've never used it since.
2002–
Still using it, but less and less. Now, if I could switch my wife to Ubuntu...

I've been using this OS for a total of 9 years. First on a new computer I got in 2002, then on a computer I built for me in 2007, then on a netbook I bought in 2008. I currently use Windows 7 on my home computer but I do miss the extreme blazing fucking fast speed of Windows XP...

Windows XP is the least bad Windows version I have used, and the one I was using for the longest time. It is relatively simple to use, but unsafe and can make your computer slow over time.
2003–2010
Still using this classic OS here and then, although it's really old now, for some Windows-only applications I need.
2003–2007
Been the Office-OS for a long time. For a time I had installed on top of it bash, blackbox, and various ports of GNU tools.

Was my main OS for quite a while. Did a lot of development on it. Stopped using once Linux became viable for full-time use.

Finally started using it in 2004 on a new Dell... still using it, along-side Win7.
2004–2008
Having an operating system like XP on a family computer made it a nightmare to use, especially when AOL was thrown in the mix. I swear, AOL killed my inner child.
2004–2007
This was my favorite version of windows. This OS is best for gaming.. if there is any other OS for gaming. Security issues today make it hard to keep an install of Windows clean.
2004–2006
2004–2010
Used for long time. Like its stability and user-friendly interface
2004–2007
2005–2009
Forced to use this when I took my current job. Hated every minute of it.
2005–2010
This one rocked, for sure. I installed this after getting my old computer back into working order.

2005–2011
Before falling in love with programming. Games. All day long.
2005–2012
The most time I spent learning computer, playing games and breaking things. Usability is ok, security sucks. I had considered moving to Linux but I needed to use Windows apps and WINE didn't cut it.

2007–2010
Along with my first laptop. 2010, I switched to Linux Ubuntu.

Running on a VM so I can see what Internet Explorer breaks (and so I can redirect and not fix).
