Microsoft has staked a lot on Windows 8 being the key to its future, but preliminary numbers from analyst house Forrester suggest that business isn't too keen on the new OS.The firm's 2009 survey data for Windows 7 shows that at this point in its sales cycle, 49 per cent of firms expected to upgrade to that then-new operating system. Forrester has now surveyed 1,282 IT managers in the US and Europe concerning Windows 8, and found that figure has dropped to less than a quarter.In addition, only five per cent of those surveyed had plans to upgrade to Windows 8 in the next 12 months, compared to 10 per cent back in 2009. More worrying for Microsoft is that barely half had even bothered to look at it seriously, compared to 73 per cent for the older OS.It seems that Microsoft's blitz to convince the world that Windows is the future has thus far had limited effect in Western server rooms.
if u have hardware for Xp, it will handle W7 just fine
