I went from Windows XP to Windows 7 32-bit and as I recall the only
application that wouldn't run was Photoshop 4, so I upgraded to
Photoshop 5. My printer and scanner are both fairly old but both work
perfectly.

The drivers for my old MOTU 828mkii audio interface were no good so I
replaced it, but I got more selling the old one on eBay than the new
one cost me.

I'd bite the bullet and do a clean install of Windows 7 (if I could find a legitimate license to buy) or of Windows 8/8.1. The gotcha, though, is that a lot of older applications have compatibility issues with post-XP Windows versions and and a lot of older peripherals do not have drivers that are fully compatible. A lot of users are going to find that putting off OS upgrades for 6 or 7 years means that they have a lot more upgrading and replacing to do now.
