Is there a way to get a Windows Experience Index Rating (the one shown in Windows 7/Vista) on a Windows XP machine ?

According to this article, you can perform the test -

One interesting aspect of winsat.exe is that it can also be launched under Windows XP. It provides the same functionality on that operating system with the exception of the Windows Experience Engine. What you basically get is a benchmarking tool for your computer system developed by Microsoft.

The steps for doing this are described in the article.

As far as I know, you have to take into account that the rating between Vista and 7 changed, so the same values don't tell the same story between Vista and 7. – private_meta Aug 5 '10 at 21:11
