More or less twice a year for the past three years, we have been asking TechRepublic members a very simple but important question:

What percentage of your enterprise is running Windows XP?

We ask this question, and a few others, in an effort to assess the current state of Windows use in enterprises as reported by IT professionals. The trend confirmed in October 2012, as you might suspect, is that Windows XP is slowly by surely being replaced by Windows 7.

But now it is March 2013 and Windows 8 has entered the picture, so it is time to re-poll the IT professionals of TechRepublic.
