Windows XP is a lot more secure than NT4 ever was. The Root, Programs Files and Windows directory are more secure by default to prevent users/malicious code installing them selves on to the computer.
Also, the system is more stable as it prevents certain programs from accessing core components directly and causing it to crash. Some some old low level programs will not work on XP.
Overall its much better than NT.
