I think most Windows users use whatever they have loaded on the machine, and 
then say "My computer is broken" when it's Vista malfunctioning. Most Windows 
users don't even know how/when/why they could go back to XP. So, when I 
think "Loads" in the Windows world, we should be talking about tens of 
millions, and I think the switch-back crowd is far less than that.
