I haven't found this OS as an ideal one. May be I'm conservative, but as for me XP is the best.

XP SP2 was around for soooo long - extended by Vista flopping - that through most of it's lifespan there were no issues with compatibility.

New OS systems will always have compatibility issues, you just don't remember them way back when vanilla XP was released.

Windows 7 wasn't a bad OS at all, and the mistake MS made with 8 was rolling it out over mobile and desktop devices with the same touchscreen optimised interface (which could be disabled if you knew how).

10 is a solid upgrade and has been out now for coming up to a year in July. There shouldn't be any major compatibility issues any longer, only on small independent software or out of date hardware. If your setup and software is essentially quite new or up to date then you shouldn't have to worry.

Of course if you use extremely specialist software or something it's worth checking before upgrading, but otherwise it's better to bite the bullet while the upgrade is still offered for free.

The biggest problem I see with XP is future-proofing. Simply put, it is dated, and this is bound to affect future compatibility.

Windows 10, while I have a gripe here and there about it, by and large runs quite well. Further, it's the only option for DX12+.

You are right of course - this is a problem.
