1704. Stick with Windows XP

I need to continue using Windows XP. I don't want to upgrade to Windows 7, 8, or 10. I know Microsoft has abandoned Windows XP, but is there anything I can do so that I can continue using it? It's funny we've been moving people for the last few years away from windows XP. towards Windows 7 or 10.

I think Windows 8 is a bad choice at this moment but in any case.
