    Had ~14 users on Windows 7. I'm still using it as my daily driver for Engineering workstation apps. Have moved over 2 workstations to Windows 10 Pro, and 5 systems to Linux (2x Ubuntu, 3x Mint). By next year, I expect 13 on Linux, 2 on 10, and 1 on 7 permanently (i.e. forever).

    I know 3 people on XP
    2 on Vista
    a lot on 7.
    They all won't be changing anytime soon.
    Only 1 on XP I would say is justified due to newer Windows not supporting their programs.

    Yep same same for me, and i'm 40 in August.

    It annoys me that in the last company i worked for we migrated the last Win7 box over 4 years ago, now in this company i still got half the fleet and ZERO FUNDS to migrate it... can bet i'll still have Win7 on my network come next year.

    Nope all old (5+ years) and mechanical hdd's so the few that did have digital licenses that allowed an upgrade, have all added minutes to just boot up. but whatever its the business risk now not mine.

    I like my users to have a good experience so put forward the SSD upgrades and then did Windows 10 as well. 5 yo PC is still excellent for regular daily tasks. CAD machines just got straight upgraded. It's also better for me to not have EOL OS in my fleet.

    Total cost to upgrade workstations was 1*240gb SSD each.

    still doing "other".

    I busted tail distancing myself from other workers on previous projects following advice and successes from advisors who went down the linux trail.

    Work ditched the win/OSx fanboys over time, though we found ourselves with more challenges.

    Those of us who put in the hard yards were rewarded for our time and dedication.

    I don't talk to any of my old peers anymore. It's tough in a way - a couple of them here on OCAU are family members.
