On April 9, 2010, I polled TechRepublic members on this question:
According to a Forrester Research study, most of the early Windows 7 adopters are very satisfied with the operating system. I know I am. But I was curious as to how fast IT professionals on TechRepublic were taking to the latest Microsoft operating system.It appears, despite a very vocal disagreeing minority, the vast majority of our poll respondents (84%) are very satisfied or at least satisfied with Windows 7.
And that leads me to wonder: What exactly are the Windows 7 naysayers complaining about? Are you one of the Windows XP holdouts or Vista haters who have absolutely refused to give Windows 7 a fair shake? Do the results of this poll at least give you pause; do think that maybe you should actually give Windows 7 a serious look now?
