Perhaps some of their customers are still using W/NT?  I, too, saw some 
W/NT systems three years ago; they're gone now, primarily because the 
company was bought out.  We only had four or five left out of about two 
hundred desktop PCs; the rest of our Windows systems ran W/2K or W/XP.

Companies are reluctant to replace working systems that get the job 
done!  Let one fail, however, and they won't spend a dime repairing it; 
just drop it in the dumpster and  bring in a new one.
