Musescore 2.0

Does anyone know if Musescore 2.0, after the beta, will run on Windows XP?

I don't think anyone can say for sure. It will kind of depend on how well Qt works on XP. The current version seems to, but you never know if they'll change something between now and then.

There is no reason why it shouldn't provided there are no problems with Qt - one has already reared its ugly head: #31361: MuseScore 2.0 beta 1 crashes on startup (requires SSE2 instruction set)

As an obsolete operating system, it is very likely that as development continues with Qt, support will no longer be possible, however.

I would urge you to consider upgrading to a more modern, and secure, OS. Personally I would recommend Ubuntu Studio which IME works straight out of the box unlike some other Ubuntu distros which need tweaking to run media applications.
