I believe that you'll be OK. I was a XP Pro user from early 2002 through Nov 2009, a few months short of eight years. Vista didn't impress me the first bit, so I skipped it, and went with Windows 7 in Nov 2009. It was a much easier transition than I thought it would be, and I also went from 32 to 64 bit at the same time.
I still have a 32 bit notebook around, but when it goes, 32 bit computers will be forever gone for me. Not that I didn't enjoy my years with XP (and Win 2K), but they seem so ancient now. And I'll never use it for purchasing, emailing, or anything high priority. But it still has a purpose for me, which is folding. Us folders are doing a lot to help find cures for many diseases. There are several threads on the topic on this forum. If you still have a extra computer laying around, [email protected]
would be a good use for it.

And Welcome to the forum, I see that you haven't been here long. You'll like it here, there's more help, plus not having to put up with the snobs at some of the other forums, which I won't call by name. They know who they are.
Best of Luck,
