Analysts are predicting a victory for Microsoft and its Windows 7 operating system, IT Business Edge editor Ann All writes in a recent post, for a number of reasons.
In a recent Forrester survey, at least 65 percent of companies are planning a move to Windows 7, though some of them don't yet have a specific time frame in mind. A lot of these companies probably notice the many enhancements and new features of Windows 7 that can help the enterprise, as Frank Olhorst writes at CTOEdge.
The one thing that could halt the mass migration to Windows 7 is cost. According to Gartner, companies can expect to pay up to $1,930 per user to move from Windows XP to Windows 7. The cost is considerably less, $339 to $510 per seat, for those moving from Vista to Windows 7, but that's only a tiny sliver of companies.
