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...
