The upcoming release of Windows 7 and the positive feedback that accompanied its development, may not be used to modify the approach of business and suspicions that have always accompanied the release of a new operating system.

According to a market survey conducted by Dimensional Research, most companies do not migrate to the new Microsoft operating system, at least in the years to come.

More than 83% of 1100 IT companies consulted said they did not intend to migrate to the new operating system for next year. Some large enterprises have adopted Windows Vista, while the majority will continue to use Windows XP. 42% of companies said they expected adoption in two years, 24% in 24/36 months, and 17% wait over 36 months. Many companies have also decided not to install Windows 7.

In addition to the mistrust that characterizes the classical output of the new software, we must also take into consideration the financial situation of companies primarily by conditions of economic crisis, which requires large budget cuts and a good cost-benefit analysis before any migration.

In addition, software compatibility has always been one of the most annoying problems for businesses, so that some think of a change of policy and rather than move from Windows XP to Windows 7, they intend to turn to for other operating environments such as Mac OS or Linux.
