Developing Windows XP

Posted 17 April 2013 - 04:41 AM

I was wondering is it possible to develop software/program effectively in Windows XP (esp. Windows XP Professional 32-bit). It maybe an old operating system (October, 2001) but it is good, simple and works like other operating systems. If I were to code in C, C++ or do stuff like game development would there be any issues?

P.S Who doesn't love the log in music?

The only issue would be people no longer running WinXP. I like XP, but Microsoft is going to stop supporting it. This will cause users to migrate to newer (and I didn't say better) OSes. Why start developing for a sinking ship?

Not to mention the architecture changes between XP and later versions of Windows.

While, yes, you could start developing on Windows XP, you would have a pain of a time trying to get your applications working on later versions.
