I NEVER see Windows 7 on any corp networks on the TV!!!!
Everytime i see a computer monitor on the TV in the background, I always have a little glance at what OS they are running.
They all seem to have windows XP (and 99% have same dell cut out keyboards)...
NHS - every hosptial ive seen
the TA Army
the BBC (news)
Fire Service - even in there new build super station
All banks ive seen.
a nuclear power station on the news
the list goes on... I never see a windows 7 login screen.
Makes me feel a little better about the fact that we are still predominately windows xp!!
Does anyone see windows 7???

a lot of tv dramas these days tend to have a linux derivative - I know Spooks did until the last series (or last 2) when they moved to the amazingly secure Macs

A lot of the places you listed are large and super archaic in their technology. We've nearly abandoned XP.

Bones, NCIS and NCIS LA, The Finder, all use windows 7, also due to move on to W7 - CSI (all sets)

There's a few large banks and superstores that you could add to that list

If their internal security is good enough and their apps are web/java/nix based (or anything not .net) then windows 7 doesn't need to be high on the list of priorities.

The Bank and Insurance company i worked for was rolling out 250 Windows 7 machines a week, they are to ramp it up soon. They will be 100% by the end of the year.

The BBC is upgrading to Win 7 at the moment - One of the Members of the Chris Moyles show was tweeting about being upgraded the other day.

As if by magic, I just saw reference to this (peer reviewed) paper.
Organizational Adoption of Open Source Software
Apparently 24% fortune-1000 companies are using open source operating systems on their clients, but not for the reasons you might expect.

With the big organisations it's definitely a software support issue. I remember reading not that long ago about companies still running IE6 because some web based software they run was written to its broken HTML spec and they can't use it in anything else.

Aye, they take longer to update and will some how cost millions even if they are a company with 1 PC.
