Gartner: 75 percent of businesses to run 64-bit Windows by 2014

Posted on Sunday, December 20 2009 @ 03:35:06 CET by

Market research firm Gartner predicts three out of four corporate PCs will run a 64-bit version of Windows by 2014:
The same Gartner paper seen by DailyTech predicts that 75 percent of corporate PCs will be running a 64-bit version of Windows by 2014. Many businesses are choosing 4GB or more of RAM when specifying new systems, as the cost of upgrading and downtime can sometimes be more costly than the hardware itself. Windows 7 will be the last OS to provide a 32-bit option, and Gartner thinks that companies should start preparing now.

"Corporate buyers need to establish a position on moving to 64-bit as part of their Windows 7 planning. For many users, moving to 64-bit with Windows 7 may be the right solution with respect to performance and support for new applications. However, others may find significant compatibility issues coupled with little to no benefit from making the shift at this time. Either way, all organizations must take steps to provide a basic level of support for 64-bit Windows 7, particularly for consumer-facing applications".
