But these aren't well known companies, are they.

No...... They are the backbone of British industry and their ilk probably far outnumbers "well known" companies in terms of employees.

And they don't have Enterprise Agreements with Microsoft, do they.

True, but the first 4 (retail) versions of v6 were nothing to write home about, so I think the general point still stands.

After several stays in hospital recently and many follow-up visits, I note that the health service largely run XP. In fact, I don't remember seeing any other OS in use.
Are they big enough for you?

NHS Scotland has snubbed open source alternatives to re-engage with Microsoft after signing an Enterprise Agreement covering the deployment of Windows 7 on nearly 100,000 desktops.

The three year contract penned this summer is estimated to be worth around £5m in total with 17 of the 22 health boards in Scotland signing up.

So not even the whole of scotland signed up for that upgrade and NHS scotland is still only a very small chunk of the NHS in total. I have seen some department still using DOS based PC''s.

It doesn't matter if home users rush out and buy it in large numbers on the whole companies of all sizes as well as givernmen departments are very happy with XP, it does everything they want, they can get staff trained all to the same standard.

Getting Win 7 accepted was hard enough for enterpise customers Win8 will ne nearly impossable, and yes the "average" computer user in a company is an "idiot" who will throw a wobbly when something is moved or changed.

As far as I can see MS threw a big two fingered salute to the whole of their enterpise base and started chasing the tablet market which has little to zero money in it anyways.

I'm not convinced that that is true.

You must have worked with some very poor companies. I migrated 1,000+ users from DOS to Windows 3.1, then to Windows 3.5, then to Windows 2000, then to Windows XP. Very few people took more than a few days to get used to the new systems. No-one ever asked to revert to the old one.
