Oh, OK. I was just making sure. As you know, .au and .nz have a complex relationship - we protect them militarily in return for having somebody to thrash in our "international" sporting competitions

(The original plan was to work a sheep into that comment, but this is a family-oriented forum after all.)

Yeah, joking aside, I love NZ! Really one of the best places to visit IMHO.

I think many here in this thread are failing to grasp a very major point... Vista was release Jan. 30, 2007 and to date it has only garnered an 18% share of desktops worldwide! READ HERE By comparison XP (released in October of 2001) still has 65% of the market share... 8 YEARS LATER!

Win 7 had 3.2% market share last month A FULL MONTH BEFORE it's official release! For comparison; Vista had less than 1% share a month before it's official release in 2007!

In addition, this article about 60% dont plan to win7 was written 3-4 months ago when many were just getting on the Win7 bandwagon! A lot has changed since July in the press and marketplace concerning Win7. I do agree that the economy is going to slow the Enterprise from moving to 7, but it is inevitable!

To me the most wonderful thing about 7 is the fact that the code is smaller, lighter, and faster. Think of Win7 as "Steve Austin" after the accident and surgery! "Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."LOL!

To illustrate what I mean about smaller, lighter, faster: I have Win7 loaded on 2 machines that are not suppossed to run 7... (a 10 yr old P3 800MHz with only 512MB RAM, and a 5 yr old P4 2.8GHz with 768MB) neither would run vista, and both are running 7 faster than they ran XP. For more dinosaurs running Win7, see this thread: Windows 7 on OLD computers

So by only doing an OS upgrade many enterprise level businesses will overnight gain better, stronger, faster than they were before PC's! I think that many will switch... many more than switched to Vista! It will just take 6-12 months to see where the enterprise heads!
