If the companies that were using Win 2K pro before went to XP pro, it was not due to XP Pro already being on the machine. They already have a legal version for Win 2K pro and could have easily laid that down on the machine.
No IT department that I am aware of will take a machine out of the box with the O-S and implement it into a work environment. They use preset images of the work environment that the machine is to be used in and lay that image down on the machine with the O-S and whatever else is to be used in the environment. They also install what's needed after to complete the installation so that the person can do his or her job.
Well that's most likely not true if they have any expertise and professionalism about themselves. They most likely are on call and have a remote VPN connection into the MS network using MS at home.

You don't know what you're talking about as companies start positioning themselves to use .NET solutions in the work environment.
