    All of them -.-
    I have been pushing for an upgrade for ages but it keeps being moved back. Some genius even changed my last order for some new desktops and requested they were downgraded to xp...

    We used to have about 160. But now we have 2.... I got the wrong end of the stick. I thought the support for XP ran out today. So in the last week pushed out Win 7 to all of our machines bar 2 laptops! Still not all bad

    We have a few classrooms and laptops still on XP, but the current machines won't take 7, so hopefully they are being replaced in the summer. Then we will be a Windows 7 site (bar a few iMacs currently running Mountain Lion).

    I recently upgraded out Gravograph Laser Cutter machine to W7. I had to email Gravograph for the latest drivers but they sent them and it works with no problems now .

    We're going to continue with around 80 actively in-use next year because our second site is being kept open for an additional year (there'll be around the same number of students on the site). I'm hoping to keep around 60 workstations from the blocked off section of the building in reserve as spares, so we can swap them out quickly.

    I'd have loved to give them the benefits of Windows 7 like our other site, but with the site doomed to closure it just wasn't possible. :-(

    Are they not good enough for XP?

    The kids are good enough for both XP and Windows 7.

    If it was a typo and you were meaning whether the workstations were good enough for Windows 7, then probably not. We'd also need to upgrade the servers on the site to 2008 from 2003 too. If I'd known the site was going to be open for three years and I'd had a budget and control in the first year I'd probably have pressed for a different approach.
