I think that this corporate policy will have far more impact on your company
than on Microsoft. As more and more people and companies deploy XP2, it
makes me wonder if you should just consider leaving the Microsoft market

Please tell me how to do that. I live not too far west of Sydney - about an hour on a good day west of the suburbs of 
Sydney's outer fringe.

In my area, there are some Macs (the largest office being 4 people) and 3 businesses that use *nix as well as large 
hospitality resort places that use someone from another state under contract. Even at those places the installations 
aren't what anyone would consider big enough to even be rated "small". You have to get the rights to their entire 
countrywide contract to make it worthwhile. 

Windows based businesses, though - sure. They are as common as 4 cylinder cars! If I choose anything other than MS 
products, I don't earn an income. If I attempt to compete in Sydney in non-MS products, the fight is fierce.

If someone EVER finds a way to do as you say should be considered, it would be because MS are being overtaken by some 
other OS and possibly that other OS will just leave us where we are now. At least NOW, we have a better understanding 
of what can happen. Never jump ship until you are sure there's a lifeboat waiting!
