I want to know what were some of the top "Other" roll out plans. Stay with XP until Windows 7 SP1, Ubuntu, what?

My current place of employment was soured on Vista before I arrived and had no intention of upgrading to Vista. I've managed to create a certain amount of excitement about Win7. We plan to move from XP to Win7 in summer of 2010.

Have you analyzed what the cost would be? And/Or if the company will just purchase new hardware at that time? The date that you are seeking to upgrade (OS) seems as if there was some long thought/debate about it. Good to see.
