Oh yeah, I've got 14,000 Windows 2000 machines to update to windows XP SP2,
hang on wheres that CD?

14,000 corporate windows boxes are easy enough to do - you can just use
whatever fascist scheme you prefer to jam the update down their throats (say
500/night, if 1% have upgrade problems that's only 5 problem calls the next
day, and you're done in a month).

What's worse is having to run a university network where you have 30K boxes
that you do *not* have the political mandate to upgrade (fortunately, we *can*
get away with "Upgrade or you can't use our network to talk to anybody else",
because although we don't own the machines, we own the copper. :)
