Business users still mainly uninterested in Vista

Posted on Sunday, July 27 2008 @ 02:20:42 CEST by

CNET writes a new survey unveils Windows Vista is still struggling to gain business users. Usage of the new operating system is up more than 40 percent since January but Vista still represents less than ten percent of the market and most Vista installs were replacements of versions of Windows older than XP.
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.

In the report, Forrester analyst Thomas Mendel writes that Vista is "New Coke," and sees a strong case for bypassing the release altogether.

"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.
