My understanding is that workstation don't need Internet access to do their/there job. After reading many reports on Windows 8 and the new Windows Office; why would anybody go down that road? It's obvious I know little about servers and domains. If this happens would XP in a domain like this be counted in the total tally? 1 Server and 100 Workstations. Its just a idea of mine. With 90% plus of market share Windows only competition is Windows.

well XP can not be domain controler you need server os for that for example server 2003..
but I still know companies that uses windows 2000 server and workstations, even thought ms no longer supports that os
