    Also all the machines here are E8400's + 2gb RAM...Win 7 wouldn't exactly help performance.
    Yeah that would be a costly upgrade, no doubt about that.

    Until then the combined cost of re-licensing for Win 7, training staff/engineers, building up support and getting everything fully compatible etc is simply not worth it.
