+ - Ask Slashdot: Why won't companies upgrade systems? Where did the savings go?

An anonymous reader writes "IE6. Several governments and big companies I know use software dependent on IE6. They won't upgrade citing the expensive cost.

Do you know what's more expensive then upgrading? Downgrading to the old system they had before they upgraded! You see, before computers, companies used to have room full of people manually calculating and processing stuff. It wasn't until they computer came that they could fire all those people and saved a ton of money. Now my question is, what happened to that money they saved?

Even small portion of the money saved over the years could be used to upgrade ancient systems to modern standards but big organizations keep citing million dollar upgrade cost as why they won't do it. Where did all that money that was saved from firing millions of bookkeepers and secretaries go to?"
