Works well in a virtual machine using Oracle VirtualBox though there is a little lag.
I do VirtualBox to avoid dual booting. If Xubuntu is going to be your primary OS you can install it then re-install XP as a virtual machine.
All the Best,
XFCE used to be a good, lightweight desktop alternative. Those days are long, long gone. Now, it's almost as bloated as Gnome/KDE. I remember when XFCE was really fast, now... I don't even give it a recommendation anymore it's so bad.
