Windows 7: Is this the one?

Is this the one?

Do you think Windows 7 will replace XP Pro in businesses large and small, here and there and everywhere?

I say YES

discussed. debated. dissected. over 100 times here . maybe in the long run, yeah, 7 will overstep XP in business. just not anytime soon. probably when SP1 is released, as some statistics portray.

Sorry not reading too many back posts in the Chill... Just heard about one government agency today that is planning on sooner rather than later.

Not a problem...Questions are welcomed and yours is a very big question in the Business world and quite frankly I don't think anyone knows yet...

I guess we will wait and see what time tells after Oct. 22

I work for a large company and the IT guys tell me it will be at least until SP1 comes out. We are using XP Pro and still some NT for desktop boxes.

When an IT shop has 100s (or 1,000s) of desktops to take care of, any switch is traumatic. Couple that with learning a "new" GUI, and there's a lot of push back.

Or the IT sector will still continue to turn backwards, and shove there head up there as...s and hide from progress, "I need Antmans other Avatar for this one" so until they actually wake up and smell the 21 century, probably not.

Imagine teaching all those people how to use the computer all over again and you see the problem.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400
 
 

Yes this will be the one. I wonder if 32 bit will go first, and 64 after sp1? I work with a large (2500+ desktops) and once the win 7 commercials start there are going to be plenty of influential ppl asking IT for it

Seven may be at a slight advantage due to the relative failure of vista. Because of this and the general financial situation SME companies have missed one upgrade cycle so their systems are overdue for upgrade.

As the options are basically vista or seven now for these customers take up could be good

Spot on

My last company had soooo many people litterally scared of change, they didn't want anything new because they already knew how the old 1 worked. I spent most of my time training people on the use of new hardware/software and the oldskool crowd just made my brain bleed
