Apparently, Dynamic and rapidly growing companies with very productive employees choose propriety and the bid monolithic companies tend towards OSS, so the less the productivity of their employees the more chance they would be using OSS.

This is topical:
Icelandic Government Moves Towards Open Source - Tech Europe - WSJ
This is an intriguing quote:
Iceland's open source efforts are based partly on the UK government's own open-source strategy, he acknowledged.
"Our policy was based on the UK policy, the only thing we added to it was that students should have the opportunity to learn about [open source]", he said.

Even our banks have made it to Windows 7, its only the real hold outs and back water excrement houses like Vodafone that are useing XP now. We are also mostly hp or apple on TV mainly as they are the only ones that bother shipping anything remotely current down here.

IIRC Lloyds TSB only moved to Windows XP a few years ago, from Windows 2000. So, this isn't exactly surprising really.
My colleague here used to do roaming support in a previous job and he saw Windows 3.1 machines still in use only half a dozen years ago...

The bank I was working at recently are in the midst of a full scale roll-out of Windows 7 at the moment, averaging approx 5k deployments a week
