In my experience at various "big-iron" shops (government agencies, large 
health-care organizations and the like), four years is not a long time for 
enterprise software - a version often has to be at least four years old before 
the powers-that-be decide to try it.  One has only to look at how many 
organizations still use Oracle 8, or Java 1.3, for example, to see how 
conservative many shops are with respect to upgrades.

I'm not saying they should be that conservative, but many organizations are 
and we must be ready to deal with that.
