    Are you a Windows 7 Network?

    I had a request to run this poll from a member a few weeks back and now the holidays are upon us decided to see just who is now, or in the very near future, going to be running Windows 7 as their main school operating system. Please read through all of the options as there are quite a few!
    You can pick more than one answer BTW!

    How many times can I vote as I have three schools all of which have been on Windows 7 for a fair while now.

    None of the above, because we are fairly 50/50 split across XP/7, and there is no "50/50" option...

    Steady migration to W7 here - a great deal of our PCs will not adequately run W7 so they'll stay on XP until replacement, but all new machines get 7 now. 2K8R2 / 2K8 DCs.

    @Synack, you can only vote once I'm afraid, but as you are wholly W7 I think one vote is representative for all of your schools.

    Oh, and I apologise for the second to last option. Something has gone 'wrong'!

    Windows 7 throughout for the past year, servers are 90% 2k8R2 as well, still the odd 2003R2 server left but they're dwindling away fast.

    I'm curious about the network who voted "we don't run a microsoft OS on the desktop" Either you're a mac OS school or you're running linux school wide, personally always thought, unless you're a primary school with very few PCs, that it's a pretty bad decision but i'd be curious to hear from this person as to what they're using, how many PCs and how well it works out.

    Just finished the migration to Windows 7 and the rebuild of the entire network here (including virtualising all of the servers).
