An interesting article from the register about the death and resurrection of Windows XP

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/04/08/end_of_xp/

It seems to me that this really is a missed opportunity to convert millions of corporate users to Linux.

I work for a large utility company that used to run Windows XP as its main desktop operating system. 
We have migrated to Windows 7 and are currently writing a new interface to interact with SAP for customer accounts and billing.... we aren't using professional programmers I understand just people with some programming skills within the organisation   ( with the predictable variable results).  I have no idea of the cost of the 10,000 licenses for all the MS products we use but if we are investing time (and resources) in building a new interface to interact with SAP wouldn't it have made some sense to change over to a non propitiatory software solution?
