I gently suggest that this blanket statements is not completely 
correct.  It depends on how one defines success.  TR can work on an 
XP machine, but it will not send CW on the parallel port.

I have successfully run TR on an XP machine.  It properly interfaced 
with my Omni VI+.  As long as all I wanted was SSB, everything was 
fine and as advertised.

Since I am primarily a CW guy, I ended up going to a dual-boot system.

Be careful of blanket statements.  (Hmm.  That is a blanket statement.)
