Forrester Report - Windows 7 Commercial Adoption

Feb 26, 2011

Download More than one year after its general availability (GA) launch, Windows 7 powers one out of every 10 PCs within North American and European companies.

While far from overwhelming — especially considering that Windows XP still powers 75%. IT managers worldwide are preparing for a significant desktop transformation over the next three years.

Why? As firms naturally refresh their PCs, IT managers are already deploying Windows 7 on 31% of new PCs today, and within a year the number will increase to 83%.

But this desktop transformation involves more than just a simple hardware refresh and operating system upgrade. It also entails empowering their workforce with more modern browsers, office suite and productivity applications, connectivity options, and security controls.

Dell recommends E family latitude series for all Windows7® installs.
