Actually, yes. That would be surprising. Even in corporations, less than
5% of PC's are ever upgraded to a new version of an OS. Typically the OS
is revved when they buy a new PC.
If 8% can run Vista, that's more than enough to cover the typical upgrade
percentages. However, it's unclear if businesses would even want users to
run Vista Premium.
