    The secondary school I work at is now purely Windows 7 (x64). Everything else was binned.

    The primary schools are a bit more difficult as a lot of the hardware is so old it just won't be able to run Windows 7. Any new kit coming in goes on Windows 7 and I'm in the process of upgrading everything that will support it to Windows 7 but there are the odd standalone RM machines in classrooms that will probably be left until they break as they aren't on the internet or domain so it's not really an issue if they are still running XP.

    About half our machines are xp, I'm working hard to push win7 as the default install and move existing hardware to 7, but alot of underspecced pcs means win7 wont run too well, and no money for upgrades/new machines on some campus'. Also the boss doesn't see it as a big rush

    Also trying to get 2003 to 2008 done, managed to get 3 machines during the summer, and 2 left which are backup dc and sophos server, i'm hoping to combine.
