Windows 7 looks to be sequel to Vista; 83% of businesses will not be upgrading until at least 2011

“InformationWeek has been given a first-look at data collected by KACE from over 1100 sources regarding corporate uptake of Windows 7 after it’s released later this year. According to their stats, 83% of businesses will not be upgrading to Windows 7 until at least 2011, making the Windows 7 launch quite possibly a Vista Take 2 under additional declines in OS market share,” Rick C. Hodgin reports for TG Daily.

“The failure of corporations to migrate to Windows 7 raises additional concerns over Microsoft’s slipping OS market share as Vista sales have declined 8% in the most recent quarter,” Hodgin reports.

“Only 42% of the 1100 organizations surveyed indicated they planned to deploy Windows 7 at all within 12 to 24 months of release (well into 2H’2011). 24% said they would wait at least 24 to 36 months, and 17% said they would wait longer than 36 months,” Hodgin reports.
