A new survey says IT departments are relinquishing their hold on the nine-year-old Windows XP and beginning to move to Windows’ newest offering.
While most businesses skipped Vista completely, that’s probably not going to happen with Windows 7, according to a poll by Dimensional Research.
That’s not to say the majority of IT departments will be performing an upgrade to Windows 7 anytime soon — 60% of the 900 IT managers said they’d rather keep the old OS right now.
But that’s significantly less than 72% who said the same thing in April of 2009.
Dimensional Research attributes the change to the positive reviews (relative to Vista, anyway) Windows 7 has gotten since its release in the fall.
What about your company? Are you planning to upgrade to Windows 7 in the near future? Why or why not?
