Businesses not switching to Windows 7

stelye
I read an article a couple days ago that said 60% of businesses surveyed said they had no plans to make the switch to Windows 7, and only 5% had plans to switch to it within the first 4 months. Suggested reasons were the economy putting a strain on budgets, and compatibility worries.

Microsoft's price point for Windows 7 is really quite low, relatively speaking, and compatibility issues won't be nearly what they were with the XP-to-Vista transition.

I'm curious as to what other concerns would people have. Do you guys work at places that are planning on switching, or staying with what they have?
