Can I say that still Windows XP the best OS ever?

"If you want to really get technical, even the latest versions of Windows are still based off of the original NT core which was released several decades ago. So maybe Windows 10 is still outdated because it's using an old core"- Its a vital point to be noted. Windows 10 can be termed as a "HELL OS" as there can't be a OS so odd looking and non-user-friendly. I like Windows XP as it is fast, secure (as it was the OS which was less affected or better to to say not affected by WannaCry),good looks (again if it is customised then the looks are fabulous) and so on.
It all depends on your workload. Some folks say that "anything older than Windows 10 is outdated", but in reality, that's far from the truth. Here I am happily using Windows 7 on this 2017-tier hardware (Ryzen 5 1600), and I can run all of my daily-use apps on it without any issues. The term "outdated" is too general of a term to be applied on a large-enough scale. Perhaps you could say that Windows XP is outdated in X, but for Y, XP is still just fine.
Windows XP is still updated by Microsoft with security updates (that is, the POS version is) and will continue to be updated until sometime in 2019.
The consumer version of the OS can receive the same updates with a little registry tweak, and they aren't in any way incompatible.
Perhaps that's not what you had in mind when you said "outdated", but it is still an excellent point from a security pov.
