IT Survey: Not Quite Ready for Windows 7 (Apr. 20, 2009) — Many companies are still stick with Windows XP and not sure about new OS, Window 7, according to a survey of more than 1,100 IT professionals.

windowOver 84 percent said they don’t plan to upgrade to Windows 7, and they are also reluctant to choose Vista?

“There’s a perception among the survey participants that Windows 7 is just another release of Windows Vista,” said Diane Hagglund, senior research analyst for Dimensional Research. “They think about it the same way and they’re concerned about it.”

Obviously, people know that Windows 7 is being built using the code, or foundation, of Vista, which was released in early 2007. Vista was a memory hog, had snail-like performance and a shortage of software drivers.

Vista’s Service Pack 1, came out in February 2008, and brought with it improvements that made Vista more efficient, especially for users who had newer computers.

Vista’s Service Pack 2 is being tested and due for release in the second quarter, according to Microsoft.
