The vast majority of companies are not planning to implement Windows XP, the latest version of Microsoft's operating system, within a year of its release, according to this week's Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question poll.

Microsoft sees Windows XP, which will be launched on 25 October, as the most significant release since Windows 95.

However, despite the extra functionality in Windows XP, 81% of the IT managers who responded to this week's poll said their company has no plans to implement the new software.
