good article and basically the same I have read about Windows 7, unfortunately Microsoft left bad taste in people's mouth and Windows 7 benchmark is being set so much higher now.
One issue I have is, you know that majority of your core customers have not moved to Vista, but still using XP/XP professional, why is the upgrade so tentative?
Maybe MS could not provide a smoother transition, but I not sure if they tried to look at that issue, I maybe wrong.
Windows users have never been as big into upgrading as Apple users. I am not sure why but that has always been the case and I expect it will be that way in the future. People tend to upgrade when they get a new system. However from what I read today Windows 7 preorders have been pretty amazing and that is expected to continue into 2010.
I run Vista x64 on all my windows systems and honestly I'm not in any hurry to move to Windows 7. Being in IT all my life one thing I learned a long time ago is never be one fo the people to rush to the store when something is first released. Vista really didn't because good until SP1. After SP1 I have had no issues. Cant really say that before SP1. However when Leopard came out I really had issues that that also. Wasn't until about version 3 I felt it was in good shape. Yet again my opinion and experience with both operating systems.
I will give Windows 7 about six months and then take another look at it. I am thinking of getting another Macbook pro maybe 13" this time so that will be my first Snow Leopard machine.
