I know that Windows XP is getting "old", and it will be unsupported from April 8, 2014.

But Windows Server 2003 will be supported until July 14, 2015, and Windows Embedded Standard/POSReady 2009 will be supported until 2019.
These systems are still XP-based. Then I ask this question:

There will be a way to backport the Windows Server 2003 and Windows Embedded Standard/POS Ready 2009 updates into the Windows XP installation?

I don't see why not

It would be dirty and tedious job though, and not many if anyone would bust their arse for it
as it probably would involve either a repack of every single patch(ed) file(s)
or direct hex hack to lower 5.2 to 5.1 (in case of server)

but I see that POS Ready (SP3) holds 5.10.2600.5512
which is same as XP, this one maybe would go directly onto XP

but you also have to realize that them both are ending support on 2014/2015
extended support (as far as I know) means, that only payed support will be
and not free via win updates

maybe I'm wrong ?

If you want true Windows user experience
try Longhorn builds: 3718, 4029, 4066
