Not much reading, just look at the graphs. This is about what I would have expected from companies. XP really does work well.

XP was and still is, considered M$'s best OS. While most of us like seven more, this is from a Large Corporation's standpoint. XP is solid, dependable, and almost everyone uses or knows how to use it. Switching to Seven would cost A LOT OF MONEY!

The problem with Microsoft at the moment is that there is still no major change in the OS that can convince IT Departments to make a switch. Even I won't mind sticking to XP as it is faster for my gaming and overall performance. When I think What I need in 7 that isn't in XP, well nothing pops up. Until developers stop supporting older OS such as XP, the XP era will continue to live.

And that is their exact thoughts. A lot of them are just waiting for a reason to change.

They will have their reasons when XP is totally no longer supported (no new security updates), and folks with malicious intent continue to exploit new holes in XP knowing so many companies still run it.

I work for a large, presumingly high-tech corporation. IT here is about three to ten years behind current computer technology. XP Pro SP2 (not SP3) is the standard desktop OS, yet we use Office 2007 (in Compatibility Mode though no one is supposed to have the older Office). IE6 is still the standard browser. Part of this odd mix has to do with compatibility with certain applications that some people use here that are somewhat ancient and cranky. The hardware IT buys is fairly up to date Dell boxes with downgraded OS. My Dell Workstation has a Vista Business sticker on it, but came with XP Pro SP2. If and when IT is forced to upgrade for some reason, they will. Otherwise this company is not going to Windows 7.

Bye.

I also work for a large company, doing IT support as a contractor.

This company also is using Win XP SP2 but is stuck on Office 2000 with Outlook 2003 and IE6. I know they've tested Vista and IE7 but I have a feeling that it was close enough to Win 7 to decide to wait until Win 7 came out to change OS.
