A lot of companies just went with Windowns 7 and it was hard work to do it. Most will skip this. Why Gartner insists that Microsoft churn out versions so quickly is beyond me. No company is going to upgrade everytime a new version comes out. They should fix Windows 7 first which still has some things that need improvement...like the Search capability. An OS should be out a good 5 years before they try to sell us another one. A lot of things have to happen in the meantime. You need software to be upgraded to run on a new OS, you need drivers to catch up, you need people to upgrade their skills or at least get some familiarity to the new OS, you probably need to upgrade your hardware, and you need to justify the funding to go to a new OS.
I will probably have it at home sooner or later but will probably give it time for software and drivers to get caught up. I am not going to be an early adopter and live through the pain.
