Few Windows shops had plans for Windows Vista migrations in 2007, and it appears that there may also be little interest well into next year.
Of more than 200 responses from IT Managers to an online survey conducted by SearchWinIT.com, 37.3 % said they had no plans whatsoever in place to install Vista, while 7.6 % said they would begin adding the new desktop OS in the first quarter of 2008, and 8.5 % expect to begin the upgrade in Q2 2008.
Application compatibility was the primary concern for the IT shops, with 55.2 % citing it as the biggest Vista upgrade issue. This was in line with the runner-up concern, third-party application support, which 48.5 % said is stalling their migration plans.
