Last week, while walking through the IT department at work, I spotted a
laptop running Ubuntu (Unity). For one brief, wonderful moment I thought
my employers were investigating a move to a linux based system. However
it turned out that the laptop belonged to an engineer from one of the
software companies that supply my workplace. The engineer told me that
he runs the different versions of Windows that he needs for the various
clients in virtual machines. He also said that Unity had got several
admiring comments from the other IT professionals.

My employer's IT department confirmed that they have no plans to move
away from a Windows based installation. Shame.
