Your XP OS should be fine if all is working well. I however happen to really like Windows 7. I HATED Vista, and my exposure to Windows 8 hasn't been pleasant. At least 7 gave us back the file manager and easy acess to other tools that Vista hid from us. I still use XP and XP 64 on some of my machines and I'm happy with it.
If you really want to shake things up, switch to Mepis (Linux). I was surprised to find how easy to use this os is, and it doesn't have ANY of the MS problems. No crashes, no "error reports", no viruses!
Just my .02.
