Windows 7: The Vista thaw is finally coming to business

The Vista thaw is finally coming to business

I have included this as I was amazed to find it just as 7 is on its way to the shops

While Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system is still only running on 10 per cent of business desktops in North America and Europe, there are signs a thaw could be coming.
According to a report by analyst house Forrester Research, there is evidence that Vista adoption is accelerating, with 31 per cent of companies saying they've already started to deploy Vista within their organisation.
Another 26 per cent of respondents said they're planning to start Vista implementation this year or later.
However, a significant proportion of businesses are still aiming to dodge the OS altogether. According to Forrester Research, 15 per cent of respondents are planning to skip Vista and move straight onto its successor, Windows 7.
Currently, Windows XP continues to dominate running on 71 per cent of business PCs across North America and Europe. In comparison, Apple's Mac OS X powers three per cent of enterprise computers and Linux - more than half of which is Red Hat - is used on two per cent.
Forrester Research quizzed more than 950 IT decision makers from companies of more than 1,000 employees in North America and Europe.

XP/Vista/Windows 7 builld 7000

not where i am, but there may very well have been a response to the quiries put across at the last ms developers conference where the big push was, upgrade to vista now to ease migration to windows 7 later. not a big sellling point and i wouldn't have dared try floating that balloon across a desk. still, if the survey says....but i haven't seen it.

Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

This is really freaking wierd. Most people don't want vista because of the fact that their apps aren't compatible with it, or they're not used to it. What makes 7 different? It is Windows NT 6.1 after all, just .1 away from Windows NT 6.0 aka Vista. So yeah, they should really go with ittech's advice.

Upgrade Vista Business to Windows 7 Home Premium?
What are the "upgrade" rules? I don't need Windows 7 Professional but sometimes upgrades don't work if you are moving to a package lower on the feature tree. Please let me know if you have a definitive answer or give me a pointer to the correct place to ask.
