Report: Businesses Finally Moving to Vista

ChannelWeb

A Forrester research brief claims that businesses are ramping up their adoption of Vista, and advises that other businesses do so to get ready for Windows 7.According to the report, data gathered from 50,000 visits to Forrester's homepage from the last quarter or 2007 through the second quarter of 2008 shows an increase in Vista use from 5 to 8.8 percent. And a growing number of Vista adoptions are coming from Windows XP users.

The author concluded that businesses should not plan on skipping Vista and waiting for Windows 7 instead. "Desktop operations professionals are also increasingly realizing that the investments they make with Windows Vista today will ultimately pay off if and when they're ready to deploy Windows 7," says the report. "IT managers must stay the course and migrate to Windows Vista sooner rather than later."

Interestingly, a different Forrester analyst said just last month that Vista had been "rejected" by enterprises and suggested that customers consider moving right to Windows 7.ChannelWeb
