It is frustrating to see so many of them still on IE 7, XP, and Office 2003 which hurts Windows and Office sales and holds back innovation. At the same time the accountants notice significant savings by keeping I.T. costs down with decade/semi decade updates to their images while I.T. only puts out fires in between. Will this change that or will Microsoft cloud offerings with outsourced Exchange and Sharepoint make up for this with cost savings and continually updated software in the enterprise?
