I don't know the specs on your Thrive, but if you don't have 2G of RAM I would not worry about the processor.

There may be a reason that it came with XP and not Vista (assuming it was made in that era)
Thrive is the tablet. You do not say what your computer is
Linux may be an option (requires lots less computing power/RAM) It all depends on what other tasks you do.
