In June 2009, Mark Kaelin suggested the end was coming for Windows XP and asked what you were going to do about it? He is still asking?
In June 2009, I suggested that it may be time for IT professionals and leaders to, at the very least, begin considering what to do after Windows XP is no longer a viable operating system choice for business. The results of the polls I used to gauge my hypothesis, found in the blog post titled "IT Professionals Will Not Drop Windows XP Quietly (if Ever)," revealed a strong reluctance to migrate away from XP for any other operating system at all.
But now that Microsoft Windows 7 has been released, I am wondering if that sentiment has been relaxed and if more of you are considering an operating system migration? So, here are a few more poll questions that we can use to assess where we stand as a community on this idea. Please, take a few moments to share your thoughts in the ensuing discussion thread, because we really want to know your thinking on this subject.
