There are a larger number of new features and capabilities in Vista and
above that are not supported in XP than between XP and 2000. However,
the current developer tools still support building for XP.
XP does have the same problem that 2000 does in that it is no longer
supported by Microsoft without an extremely expensive support contract.
Given the fact that so many sites still have XP and Server 2003 systems
in production, I can't imagine deprecating support for XP for at least
another two years.
