        “Overall, I have less clients this year asking for these ESUs as they’ve replaced many of their machines with Windows 10 in the past year.”

        Can you give us some sense of the degree of decline?  E.g., is it more on the order, of say 20% fewer requests than you had at this time last year; 50%; or 80%?  Also, do you know of any who moved to 0patch?  That’s what I did with one of my three Windows 7 machines, while again buying a Microsoft ESU from Harbor for the other two (which are used a good deal more).  Even though I don’t relish moving to Win10, I suspect that’s what I’ll end up doing with all three machines later in ’21. Thanks

        Corporates will be “upgrading” though, of course.
