EDIT: The last 2 systems managers I just spoke to also said, they will not be upgrading their businesses to Win 8
Businesses are a different ballpark altogether. System apps must all be tested which takes a lot of time and money, hence why many businesses simply skip major OS generations. Business also gets longer support life cycles too.
I am still rolling out Windows 7 updates from XP for companies around here, as their internal testing is only just finished.
Many factories still rely on legacy hardware and run Win NT4/9x even.
