I don't understand your responses. In one post, you pan the users who say they aren't going to upgrade. Then in your next post you state the exact reason I post for why many reasonable businesses don't bother with upgrading: value (or lack thereof). I agree with you - it is all about value, but I'm trying to figure out why you say I'm all wrong even when you agree it would be a waste of time/money to upgrade. ???
My company didn't see anything in Windows 7 we couldn't do in XP already. So we are just now beginning to replace our PC's with Windows 7 as they die. We avoided Vista altogether after initial testing proved that lack of software and drivers and support from PC manufacturers made it an absolute disaster. In Windows 8, the interface makes things more difficult for desktop users (99% in my company), thus we don't want anything to do with it. We'll wait until they put out the first Service Pack and see if they finally allow desktop users their choice of interface. Or we may just skip it entirely. This is a business decision, pure and simple. And it didn't even take my MBA to figure it out.
And I'm not implying anything. You're putting words in my mouth. For us, Windows 8 doesn't provide value. Neither really did Windows 7 for that matter. We are moving to it because we don't really have a choice. I never said Windows 8 was a failure, only that it didn't provide value. There's a difference and I'd take it kindly if you wouldn't try to speak for me. If you think I'm implying something, maybe you can ask.
