Like Cynthia that decision is made at the campus IT level. Over the past
year I've migrated nearly all lab and staff PCs from XP to Win7 (keep an
eye out for a related question I'll be posting later today on that topic).
Campus IT is toying with some Win8 images, but haven't been happy with any
of them. Given that they're still finishing up their XP migrations, though,
I seriously doubt we'll be moving to 8 anytime soon, if ever.
