Now that Windows 7 is out, how many people are still trying to upgrade from XP to Vista ? Is there any site out there with this data ? I have found many sites with data about Vista's market share, but nothing on upgrade patterns.

My company is going from XP directly to Win 7.

We managed to do the XP to Vista upgrade, but unfortunately it doesn't look like we'll be doing 7. Budget just can't take another huge upgrade hit like that so soon. – Brian Knoblauch Jul 26 '10 at 14:38
Win8 is already in the makings and we still have some users on xp. – jer.salamon Jul 26 '10 at 14:41
Sorry to hear that Brian. Looks like your IT staff jumped the gun. – James Watt Jul 26 '10 at 14:41
Windows 8 will be another disaster (like Vista). Windows is like Linux, every other major release is a test. – James Watt Jul 26 '10 at 14:42
Still trying to phase out Windows 2000 usage here. – steve.lippert Jul 26 '10 at 14:53

I can tell that lots of places will upgrade to Vista in the near future since the budget problem, not all companies have enough money to upgrade to windows 7 directly.

Especially lots of schools (primary & high) will upgrade to Windows Vista because they will get it for almost free...
