8M was a typo, should have been 100M.
The downgrade: is quite common in businesses large enough to have an IT dept. It's for them not a matter of resources. Neither was it for Vista: it's to them a matter of uniformity: everything they have runs the same software. it's just so much easier to maintain.
They'll have the right to upgrade it all to 8 if and when they feel like it, but with the changes in the user interface, they're very hesitant to unleash it on all users. You have to remember those not knowing the difference between the Internet and a browser make up the majority of the users ... Forcing a change on those folks costs a lot.
