Microsoft claims Windows Vista's adoption will be twice as fast as Windows XP's adoption:
It says ten times as many business desktops will be deployed at release compared to any previous Windows version.

We’d put this down as more than a tad optimistic. Nevertheless, Brad Goldberg, general manager of the Windows Client Business Group at Microsoft remains buoyant, claiming the company "has made a concerted effort to give customers the tools and training they need to adopt Vista across their businesses".
Other sources like a survey from ComputerWorld show less optimistic results, The Inq reports. 17 percent of IT professionals plans to switch to Windows Vista in the first year, 35 percent will begin testing it once it ships and 41 percent has no plans yeet to roll out Windpows Vista.
