Enterprises are slowly taking to Windows Vista, says Forrester.

The analyst firm's annual hardware survey found that 31% of IT managers in North American and European enterprises have begun their migration to Vista, and Vista is powering just under 10% of all PCs within enterprises.

Forrester said, "Despite considerable interest in Windows 7 - Windows Vista's eventual successor, slated for release in early 2010 - Windows Vista is finally shaping up to be the operating system that dethrones Windows XP."

"While most IT managers are anticipating the struggle with managing their upcoming dual-OS environments of Windows XP and Windows Vista, some recognise it will only get worse as they are required to more broadly support Macs, Linux, and even consumer PCs, as a result of tech populism's impact on the client domain."
