Some reports say that there will be no discount and it will cost upwards of £100 Million for ONE YEAR. This of course is on top of the cost for new Windows licenses. These same deals are being negotiated for banks and corporations worldwide who gambled on Microsoft extending XP support yet again instead of taking the relatively cheap jump to Windows 7 years ago.

Final cost is £5.5 Million for one year. Hey UKers, how you like them apples?

The banks will pass along the extra expense through raising service charges, check fees, etc to the consumer. If all the big banks in the UK are in the same boat, then once again the little guy (us) will pay the piper.
