Ballmer advises companies not to stick with WinXP

Posted on Monday, February 09 2009 @ 06:02:07 CET by


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer warned IT organizations risk provoking an end-user backlash if they don't move off the Windows XP operating system.
"If you deploy a four or five-year old operating system today, most people will ask their boss why the heck they don't have the stuff they have at home," the Microsoft CEO said.

In an interview at an event to mark the extension of Microsoft's collaboration with EMC to help IT professionals improve virtualisation, security and content management, Ballmer touched on the progress of Windows 7.

He stressed that its faster performance, longer battery life and simplified security settings will be "a pretty good step forward in terms of what users care about."

For these reasons and others, Ballmer warned that, enterprises that stick with Windows XP too long risk complaints from impatient users who have been using newer computers running Vista and Windows 7 at home.
