Probably not, because you have to remember that XP was created over a decade ago. When it was in development, Matrox was about the only video card maker out there that had video cards that could handle more than a single monitor at a time, and those cost several hundred dollars.
As much as people love to hate on Vista, it incorporated a substantial number of improvements to the underlying infrastructure to make it better able to contend with things like multiple monitor configurations. The Aero UI wasn't just a bunch of eye candy, it was a near total rewrite of the Windows UI to use DirectX instead of GDI+.
There are significant limits to what XP is capable of, simply because it was being developed in the 2000-2001 time frame so that it could be released in late 2002. It's now 2013, so again, we're talking about over a decade. Back in 2000-2001 no one could have possibly predicted where things have gone in the computer hardware world. Multi-core CPUs did not exist except maybe in the R&D labs at Intel and AMD, multi-head video cards were rare and expensive, 1GB of RAM was a substantial amount, TB level HDDs did not exist, we only just passed the 10 year anniversary for x86-64 a few days ago which is the underpinning of pretty much every 64-bit version of Windows out there. It's better to just let XP die with a little dignity, instead of trying to turn it into some kind of monstrosity of mishmashed parts held together with duct tape and a prayer.
