The reason I use XP in Parallels is - it's really fast. I don't have particular aesthetic needs in winxx (I've learned not to expect much there anyway); I just want to get in, do what I have to do (using my few apps that don't support anything but winxx) and get out again as unscathed as possible, shuddering at the system fonts. I already own a copy of XP from years ago, so for me it'd be pointless to 'upgrade'. But I can see how particularly users of more recent software would need a more recent OS.
