Default running vista and xp

I'm trying to purchase new machine with window vista, but my company has 9 other computers with window xp.
My concern is if I use vista and xp together in a same workgroup, it might cause a lot of troubles.
Should I purchase the new machine with window xp?

Your chances oif finding a XP machine are few and far betwenn. You cant get a machine and use Partiton Magic to create a new partition and install XP. I run both XP and Vista on my home network no problem.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
