Companies Might Just Pass On Vista

Vista has certainly faced some adoption issues and it looks like recent comments about how soon Windows 7 might be available could be causing those on the fence to stay there a little while longer.  This could very well be a motivating factor for companies to “Just Say No.” to Vista.

Among the latest to jump on this bandwagon is General Motors.  The automobile giant has said that it has encountered so many problems getting Vista to work on its machines that it is likely to skip the OS and wait for Windows 7.  Says GM's Chief Systems & Technology Officer Fred Killeen, "We're considering bypassing Vista and going straight to Windows 7."

There are numerous reasons why large corporations are looking to bypass Vista, but the bigger question might be what will Windows 7 bring to the table?   Is it entirely possible that XP might live on in large and medium sized businesses until compelling new technologies require an upgrade?  It’s hard to tell at this point, but something tells us that if customers are happy with XP and aren’t upgrading to Vista, they might not jump on the Windows 7 bandwagon either.
