60% of companies to skip windows 7

60% of companies to skip windows 7, according to this article. some of them because of budget issues, others because of compatability issues. still looking better than vista's history at this stange I think, well unless those remaining 40% decide to downgrade to XP like some corporations did with vista. that's just on the business side, but I think it will different on the Home front, for instance gamers seem to like windows 7 so far.

That's a terrible title. It's all about the timeframe
Survey: 41 percent of IT admins to adopt Windows 7 by 2010 - Ars Technica
by 2010 is the part to keep in mind.

I would imagine it would be a big job for firms to make the change , possibly having to retrain staff on how to use the new OS. Not forgetting the overall cost.

People tend to get set in there ways and tend to stick with what they know when it comes down to making money.So its not really surprising to me that most firms will swerve the upgrade, and as they saying goes " if it ain't broke...dont try and fix it".

Regardless of how good Windows 7 turns out to be, companies are struggling to stay afloat in these tough economic times. Upgrading OS and software is not on their priority list. Bottom line; if it works and it ain't broke, leave it alone until things get better. I am the IT Manager of a good size company and that is the approach we are taking.

40% rolling it out through 2010 isn't bad, especially given all the extra work and testing and potentially upgraded machines, etc., it means.

For a lot of places, at least for now, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Many places are fine with web use and email, etc., and don't really need big upgrades beyond that.

Bet it goes up by 2011 though once places let others play guinea pigs and they get better deals on new technology, etc.

I used to work for a very large global company. In my particular office, we were about a 50-50 mix with WinXP and Windows Vista when I left. Unfortunately, I was chatting with the guys that I used to work with and the parent company when they signed the agreement with MS on software assurance...they did not go with the option to use Windows 7...so with over 50,000+ desktops...they aren't going to deploy Windows 7 when it comes out. Their plan is more or less move desktops to Windows 7 as they buy new desktops from Dell which come with a license for Windows 7. Pretty sad considering how much better Windows 7 seems to be over Vista at this point.

It all depends on Microsoft's support for XP. My company was in panic mode when Microsoft announced they were stopping support for MS SQL 2000. We were forced to upgrade all applications to be comp. with MS SQL 2005. I imagine companies that upgrade hardware will get Windows 7 on the new hardware. Also client OSes will be dependent on the server OSes also.
