Capita generally stay quiet on these issues, only appearing to correct incorrect assumptions and mistakes said by others. As I'm basing all my comments on numbers that are sourced to the Becta, and their own accounts, along with my own opinion, then there isn't much they can say to argue back (well, not without annoying me even more).I know a number of companies going Vista because Windows 7 isn't mature, even though they are going to be stuck with it for many, many years.
I stick by my statement of Capita needs more people or at least open source some of it (yes, lets start that argument!)
PS: Wonder why Capita is keeping quiet
I agree they need more people.
I'm actually wondering kind of why Capita still owns SIMS.net - it doesn't seem to fit in with their core business model of 'focussing on expanding markets'. The education MIS market isn't really an expanding market... The only way they can make it expand is by introducing new products (SLG, SIMS mobile etc...), or by trying to become popular in other countries - something which will require significant investment, to topple existing systems.
Has Becta now gone the other way?
Didn't you see:

Last time I looked 2K8 and 2K8R2 are on the same MS support lifecycle and I couldn't care less which one it is for an app server, provided it's 64bit (in-place upgradable in future if absolutely necessary).
Arguements for both really.
My god how this has got off topic.
Matt, I made the mistake of taking five day's leave - hence I've been quiet but thanks for your support in my absence!!
We support and by that I mean thoroughly test on up to 3 server operating systems - if we dropped support for 2003 there would be a whole set of other complaints.
I can assure you that we pay market rates for developers & testers and we have lots of them.
I won't comment on Wikipedia save to say that it isn't exactly unbiased. The District Auditor approved the settlement that Bedfordshire received.
