I will never forget my super positive reaction when I first saw XP's signature new taskbar, in a early build/beta back in 1999 or 2000 if I remember correctly. Bigger and colored, different from what we were used to on previews Windows, I found it a great and modern (for its time) update :)

At the moment i'm remotely connected into 2 XP machines. They are slow as ****. Mostly because of their slow ass internet and the fact with me connected to them their cpu is maxed out at 100%

One of the slow machines actually had 1GB of ram but had a slow CPU that was using up over 50% on my gotoassist alone.
To give you an idea how slow the computer was.

On that machines I did the following

Installed the latest 6 Windows updates
Did a quick scan with malwarebytes
Ran CCleaner
uninstalled some toolbars and a stupid pc optimizer.
Ran patchmypc and updated 4 applications.

Total time : 4 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only billed her for one
