In fact, some surveys have found that the uptake of XP in corporations has been much lower than Microsoft might like - one this summer found the number to be only '56% upgraded already'. A *lot* of sites looked at the XP 'new feature' list, the pricetag of migrating from W2K to XP, and decided it wasn't worth it. Some analysts have gone so far as to say that the continual dropping of features from Vista in order to keep the ship date from slipping even more is the single biggest threat to Microsoft - because if companies didn't think XP was worth the migration, a migration to Vista is going to need some major bang for the buck (conversely, others are saying that if there's *too* many incompatible changes in Vista, it will be a major opportunity for lower-cost migrations to Linux).
