Or more likely they're running it in a completely isolated (or DMZ 
gatewayed) environment with equipment that can't be upgraded (e.g. 
instrumentation control PC's running old versions of Windows which can't 
be upgraded).  That's what we do; there's no good alternative unless 
your user has, for example, a million dollars to shell out for a new 
machine with new PCs, and even then.  We just got a new 1.5 million 
dollar microscope and the control PC is running Windows 2012. \o/
