Honestly couldn't agree with you more. I have no pull here, so if it were up to me I would replace every single machine on the floor that is running anything earlier than XP, with something atleast running Windows 7. I will probably end up removing the hard drives and taking a base image of some sort from each machine, and then try to slowly upgrade them ( if they let me). Who knows maybe some of those machines would run on newer Operating Systems. It may be time comsuming, but it would be well worth it in the long run. Thanks for the help.
