More troubling for Microsoft may be the fact that most of those Vista installs are replacing versions of Windows other than Windows XP, which remains popular with both businesses and consumers. Forrester says 87.1 percent of companies surveyed continue to use Windows XP.

"Windows 7 is penciled for release in Q1 2010. And who knows, by then, Apple may have even gotten its enterprise act together," Mendel writes.
