Companies are wary about upgrading to Windows 7 after the previous upgrade to “failed Vista” (in the words of a CIO). The Economic Times has more. Of course, some didn’t even bother:
“There’s a learning fatigue if you have new OS every two years,” said Essar Group’s CIO Vijay Mehra, adding, “Our current OS, Windows XP, is stable and we see no compelling reason to upgrade.” Essar has about 350 servers, 7,000 laptop users and 3,000 on the desktop.
Windows XP, released in October 2001, is eight years old.
