I agree and we could just end it at that and say we don't care  
everybody and their dog is running unpatched systems. But has anyone  
ever tried contacting these big companies and explaining the  
situation to maybe get some resources for the Legacy Project from  
them? Or does that sound too much like begging to people here?  
Companies like Dell just approach the Infrastructure Team and say  
"Hey, we could give you guys a couple of our servers, where would you  
like us to send them?" I guess it doesn't work like that for others,  
but they might just want to cooperate. Or they might just not care  
that their customers run unpatched systems. Since they also offer  
support on their software I guess that helping Legacy out might just  
benefit them too.
