Roll out... Windows 2000 Professional

Yes, I know... After working sixteen years for a system integrator I understand the cost of large projects, and I understand that rolling out Microsoft Windows Vista in a large organisation is no easy task.

But still, I was surprised today when I stopped at my local mall's McDonalds to get a coke (regular, no ice please, but who cares? Not the cashier, who sometimes brings with ice anyway) and noticed that, at last, they have replaced the PC running Windows 95 with a new Dell machine running Windows XP.

Then, walking back to the carpark I've noticed through a window that the local ANZ branch is still running Windows 2000 Professional on their desktops.

The large projects are getting even larger as time goes by...
