I am a little bit skeptical with this number. Don't know how they got such a skewed statistics ?

I think the assumption would be that businesses could just switch to web-enabled apps like Microsoft Office Live Workspace.


We have loads of bespoke horrible programs that would cost a fortune in time and moeny to redevelop and for no benefit.

A lot of companies would use a WSUS server for updates and approve only those they want.

Then presumably you are part of the 40% of businesses that couldn't dump Windows for Chrome OS (or any other browser/web-based OS).

I happen to think that these numbers are significantly lower that my research. Just in the last minute I did some corporate research of my own. I constructed a nice thought experiment in my head and came to some different conclusions:

1). 66.6% of all business would give up Windows for Free BSD.
2). 98.9% of all business would give up Windows for Google Chrome OS.
2). 99.9% of all business would give up Windows for the Amiga.

However, upon further reflection and much meditation (with chi and my inner consciousness or something) I realized the error of my ways:
4). 51.9% of all business would give up Windows for a legal pads and a good typewriter.

Something, something is really wrong with my maths!
