Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP back in 2014 and MS support for Vista will be ending in April.  In a statement on their blog, Google said that the Drive desktop app would still continue work for these platforms, but the company would no longer actively test or maintain the product.

Users will still be able to use Google Drive by going directly to the website for the product.
