Not true... remember that most DAWs, once you've recorded a file will write the file from RAM to the HDD... if they're still doing this while you've started recording again...
Also paging files if you don't have enough RAM..
But honestly if you're using IDE HDDs... then yes... XP...
And for simple recording, if you already have a copy of XP lying around it should be fine
