    I'm happy with using Windows 8 (With Start8), however 7 will be about for years here, until staff and applications are ready to transition to more touch\mobile devices!

    Sorry I meant last as long as xp has in total , Xp will be 12 years old 2014, so to break even on cost with select, w7 will have to last till 2018 for us and till 2022 to rival how long xp has lasted us.

    I think by 2018 plenty will have changed.
    And paying out around 15k (select) for just win7 and stay on office/exchange 2007 wouldn't make sense.

    But if we were happy with office 2007 and win 7 till 2020 we would have made quite a saving. But again can't see that happening!!

    Have you looked into EEES? We saved allot by having that.

    Hi,
    Yes, sorry I did mean EES when I mentioned "School Agreement", as I thought that EES was the replacement and it had just been renamed.

    Zero day exploits. Just that.

    Windows XP has had enormous amounts of zero-day exploits taken advantage of - mostly to knacker the Iranian nuclear programme, but still - and it is a certainty that there are plenty of crackers out there sitting on zero-day exploits hoping no-one else uses them and gets them patched before April 2014. The day after XP support ends, I reckon there will be at least half a dozen new viruses we've not seen before attacking XP, knowing that they'll not be fixed and they have free rein to stomp all over an OS that will still be far too widely used.
