Windows 7 Likely to Get Chilly Reception at Enterprise Door

Microsoft has a higher mountain to climb to soften up enterprises on Windows 7 adoption that it did a few years ago. After the Vista train wreck, many are content to keep on getting by with Windows XP — at least, until their IT departments become convinced that the new OS will live up to its promise.

At the very least, he said, most companies will want to wait for the first service pack.

  1. Great site, I now have you bookmarked to come back again.

  2. Scott:
    So, do you think Windows 7 is better than XP? Is there a reason to risk “everything” to do an upgrade?

    I checked out Vista a couple of times early on, and just noted all the additional memory each of my computers would need just to run it., so I decided against it from the beginning.

    Not sure why Windows 7 would be better. Sounds like you agree too, right?
