Not all use Microsoft. You may see it on the front end with customers. On the server side of the network its probably some flavor of linix. See it don't take a brain to use mouse ware and that is what Microsoft is, but it takes real computer techs to use linix in a business world.

Thanks! I just subscribed! I'm going to certainly be keeping up with this
one.  I cannot wait to own Windows 8, but I think that slow-on-the-uptake
screen reader manufacturers could potentially be a hindrance for all of us in this community. I mean, JAWS 12's reign could end quite abruptly if they
refuse to adapt the later versions to not use Mirror drivers anymore if
Microsoft takes them away. And then if that is the case and screen readers do not keep up with latest and greatest technology (and even nowadays, this is a problem right now in my opinion), where will we go? Will we be stuck
with our current configurations for the rest of our lives?

I find the blog concerning the development and planned features of Windows 8
to be interesting reading.  Of course, it's Microsoft propaganda.  New
entries are posted every couple of days. Screen reader users and developers
will have a lot to get used to (including a ribbon interface for Windows
Explorer).  I think that this RSS link should work:
