Actually, I think it's the Enterprise folks that are driving this "wagon". Can you imagine the cost to upgrade 20,000 or more PC's to Vista? And, for the Enterprise folks - what benefit does an upgrade to Vista give them? They'll still be running their apps that were designed for XP (for the most part). Upgrading to Vista is expensive - then add the cost of upgrading their apps to it!
FYI - my wife's office used Win95 up until about 3 years ago. They had no need to upgrade, and the proprietary software that they used didn't need Windows to run. Also, they had dialup, and it had been setup on the Win95 system for a long, long time - so they were comfortable.
Around the time I came into my wife's life, the software writer for my wife's proprietary software decided to upgrade their software to a Windows only version that required a cable/DSL connection also. The wife's office was forced to upgrade to XP because of this. How soon will the software writer change to a Vista only version? Not soon (I believe). They support many small businesses like my wife's - and the writer didn't even know what Vista was when I talked to her last month!
