Windows For any given release of Windows, there are companies that choose to skip it. But when the company is Intel, it's a big deal. Intel's IT department "found no compelling case" for upgrading to Windows Vista.

At work, we have Fedora (fc2 I believe) hooked up to our hvac systems, and have not upgraded, because it works very well, and it took some time to get there, win95 is used on many of our Branson ultrasonic welding systems to monitor energy outputs, because it works well and always has. win2k for workstations etc.. And surprising to me even, Vista is running our continuum building controls systems, and has been extremely reliable. Intel is staying where they are because they can, shaking things up for no gain is foolish, and not necessarily because the newer product is bad, but because it isn't needed.
