You do know that there is a 64-bit version XP Pro available? So XP users can still play this game when it comes out
From what I'd heard a few years ago, it was buggy as fuck and no one used it.
I used XP x64 exclusively for about a year before Vista was released, and had no issues with it. In fact it was a very robust OS that had a thread scheduling way beyond to that of 32bit XP. I was able to multitask like crazy and never had unresponsive programs on my taskbar like I used to in old XP. For me it ran smooth as butter.
Obviously some exotic hardware drivers didn't exist but but as far as graphics, sound, networking etc. everything was tip top during the time it was running on my system. And gaming on it was far far more fluid than on Vista x64, but that goes without saying.
