Really, we don't disagree on much, except that XP is presently not the Swiss cheese that it was when introduced, nor the Swiss cheese that you seem to be saying it is.
I think we've covered this topic pretty thoroughly. Interesting discussion.

if you want to keep all separate, you can easily take say a laptop and put Windows 7 on it, install any version of Linux you want on another partition, and then create a VMWare or VirtualBox or VirtualPC copy of Mac on the windows or linux partition and you got the tool to support all of them. All in one shot. Beauty of virtualization my friend and dual/multi boot.
Not to mention the TONS of OS you can install on a bunch of cheap 8 GB thumb drives to have fully functional copy of ANY OS with a label on each thumb drive that says what's inside. I mean the whole investment $40 tops per thumb drive.

You can use your pocket-sized XP for general browsing, and try out other operating systems on the new one.
I can recommend Puppy Linux as a rescue system; fits on even a tiny usb, but quite feature-packed.
Could you still try out other boots via cd on your existing one?
