Interesting thread. The Windows Secrets newsletter has two recent and
very relevant articles on this topic. See:

Keep XP fresh until Windows 7 arrives:

"...XP keeps on going and going — and if you follow some simple
guidelines, the OS will keep running in top condition until Vista's
successor is ready in 2010."

Get yourself an XP system while you still can:

"When you buy a new computer, participating companies may (a) include a
copy of XP in the box, (b) include a special "downgrade disk," ... or
(c) make you buy XP through a completely separate ordering process...
For the moment, however, you do still have some options if you want XP
instead of Vista. You can buy a computer with XP preinstalled or make
sure that a Vista computer you buy comes with an XP downgrade disk."
