research house ITIC for Sunbelt Software.

The ITIC/Sunbelt Software Windows 7 Deployment Trends & Timetable survey polled C-level executives and IT managers worldwide regarding their Windows 7 deployment plans and timetables.

The survey found that 49% of businesses would upgrade to Windows 7 within the first year, another 11% said would wait until the first Service Pack was available, while 40% of respondents had no specific upgrade timetable.

IT managers said the main reasons for not upgrading included the need to determine application compatibility issues with legacy hardware and software and a lack of a compelling business case to upgrade.

Those users with no plans to upgrade were also happy with their Windows XP and Vista deployments.
