Default non-win/nux/osx, example of unix used for non-IT purposes?

i saw a while ago that several universities, eg in the US, still uses non-windows/osx/linux systems, eg unix :

is it still the case?
what others types of non-IT organisations uses unix for common staff? (means not engineers)
are they still type of commercial contracts with end-users unix computers?

I think Microsoft still uses it in their 'backroom'.....at least they did up to a few years ago...

Colleges & universities often use it in their 'backroom' too.

I believe banks also use Unix/Linux, & likely phone companies, & media providers, (Netflix et al)

It's in space too....
