A library PC that runs some software but that will go soon, plus another in the IT office that runs a bespoke piece of software that we use to take photos and import them into SIMS and print ID cards. Mind you that software has just stopped working for some reason :-/

Oh yes and the laser cutter machine which isn't even on the network!

Ironically, our laser cutter machine is one of those already moved over to Windows 7.

Same here, except its a missing machine, I'm sure we'll fix the niggle stopping it working in 7 at some point.

I take this comment back. Just tried the laser cutter on a Windows 7 machine and it works like a dream! Hooray, no XP machines!!

About 80. Within an hour when this WDS session finishes, none!

Out of 850 machines, we probably have around 750 XP. It is hoped that these will all be upraded over the summer.

7 Desktops + all the laptops I'm likely never to see again.

About 700! :P
But we're moving to Windows 7 on CC4 in the Summer.

Id say around 500/750 are on XP, however half of these machines will not take the upgrade! There is a big bill on the way! Some of the staff machines are using celerons (*shudders*) that are over 10 years old.
We truly are in the dark ages.

Three, at the school I have only been culling rubbish at for a year, another week or so and there should be none. None for years now in the other schools thankfully, soo much less rubbish to deal with without them.

According to The Telegraph, fewer than one in four businesses have moved from XP to 7.

I wonder if there will be an ongoing market for antique hardware to run it on, kind of classic car terriroty like that company in India that makes new 1960's cars that was on Top Gear (I think that is where I saw it).

About 8-10 laptops in two schools and 10 desktops in another, one lot of laptops actually have Win 7 licenses but the muppets before us downgraded them to XP, so I'll be putting them back on 7 ASAP. the rest need replacing.
