    1 left, for a copier, will be replaced very soon.

    My last place are removing XP machines at a rate of 1,000 per week.

    4 that I am aware of.

    25 of windows 7.
    Small budget means only old hardware and old licenses.
    No plans to up the 4 xps to win7 and forget about 8.

    I've got one XP machine, it runs the library management system and I never touch it.

    I've also got one Server 2003 virtual machine, not got any plans to retire that because it's got some crazy software running on it.

    My last home machine running it died the week before last (it was in work helping my wiped Cisco routers) and won't be replaced. If I really need it at some point I'll stick it on one of the old Mac minis instead.

    None. At least when it comes to fixed desktops...

    Still some staff laptops that never come back to see us that are on XP though.
