Windows XP EOL are you continuing after the deadline?
With Windows XP coming to its End of Life are any of you replacing any of your XP machines before the April 8th deadline or are you waiting until after?
I'm asking because I'm currently reimaging the Promethean board PC's that came with Win7 but are currently running XP, I am reimaging them with Win7.
I've got some more in the Library that are still on XP but not sure If I'll be able to replace them before the April deadline.

They have all gone. We started a phased removal two years ago... there was plenty of warning after all.
At my governor school, there are a couple of PCs off the network running equipment in the technology rooms that don't have drivers for Win 7+

Slowly but surely getting the last few Windows 7'd.

One XP PC that has the library software on that we haven't brought the upgrade for. haha

All gone. After April, anyone with XP on their laptop can either take the laptop and we never see it again, or they can come in to have Windows 7 installed (They've already been told). With the caveat that the majority of laptops are ancient (Fujitsu e8020) and will run like smeg on 7.

All ours disappeared over 2 years ago. So no.

Pretty much all gone here. Only remaining ones are a couple of embedded systems and some netbooks. The vast majority of our computers are now i5, with some Core2Duos in a few spots. So, we're happy with Windows 7.
The netbooks are being moved to Linux soon, and the embedded systems will be due for replacement in a year. (5 year lives)
There's some old and pretty much dead machines with XP on in Art but they haven't been turned on for a year and I've had no complaints!

I've got 95 to do, not been given any money to replace any so I've got to shoehorn windows 7 onto some pretty old PC's (Also we have sims incoming)

All machines were replaced with newer hardware that came with Windows 7 on it at the beginning of the year.
Only 3 machines still run XP - my own machine (I can't seem to let go of it), 2 standalone machines where one runs our key fob system and the other is used to monitor pool temperature.

- Rep Power
I have 250 PCs give or take with XP on currently, 200 of those should not have a problem running Windows 7 but the other 50 are borderline. I don't have licencing to do it yet waiting for the EES renewal in March. Its going to be a busy few weeks.

some will in some schools but only because they are old fujitsu e2500's with 512mb ram the school wont spend money on them (have ees so licenses arnt an issue) but im no going to run win7 on 512k ram as it will probably make them unusable. Theres also probably odd pcs knocking round various schools that just for various reasons arnt up to the job or are somewhere ive forgotten where

finished removing XP over the summer think there are still a couple of XP clients hidden in corner but these are being hunted down

Got 2 standalone Windows XP machines, one for a astronomy program in the Science lab, the other for a program in the DT room.
We also have some laptops with XP, but they're being replaced after Christmas.

Still got about 250 PC's and 60 staff laptops running XP, all laptops are being reinstalled with 7 over the next couple of months but about 150 of the PC's are too old to take 7 We are hoping to get some kind of cash injection after we submitted a lengthy begging request AGES ago!
