Analyst: Windows 7 upgrade is ‘inevitable’

According to a statement from Gartner senior analyst Michael Silver on an article at TG Daily, it will be “all but inevitable” for most organisations to move to Windows 7. But apparently that doesn’t mean there will be a boost in Windows 7 immediately.

He says it is likely that the Windows 7 release will renew interest of consumers and small businesses “but corporate demand is not expected to gain momentum until the end of 2010”. And he also adds that “An overdue PC hardware upgrade cycle and the economic environment will be as equally important as Windows 7 in determining final demand in 2010.”

He goes on to warn that organisations should not skip Windows 7 as organisations that had previously skipped 2000 to wait for XP encountered problems spanning the gap. You can check out more on what Michael Silver said over at TG Daily.
