As of 2016 Windows 7 is still the primary supported OS on PCs at UW. If a replacement PC is required, or new or contract staff is hired, they will (by default) still be presented with a PC running Windows 7.
This is about to change however with the advent of Windows 10, and IST already has a project underway to evaluate corporate and departmental apps running in this new OS. Discussions are underway as to what needs to be done to configure it properly to make it both easy to adopt and secure and we expect there will be changes made to get to this operating system soon.
