Developers snub Windows Vista

A recent report from Evans Data shows fewer than one in 10 software developers are writing applications for Windows Vista this year.

In a CNET News.com article, Matt Asay writes, "A recent report from Evans Data shows fewer than one in 10 software developers writing applications for Windows Vista this year. Eight percent. This is perhaps made even worse by the corresponding data that shows 49 percent of developers writing applications for Windows XP." For more details, read the entire article: Vista's big problem: 92 percent of developers ignoring it.

Do these stats reflect what's happening in your shop? If you're holding off on writing apps for Vista, what are your primary reasons?
