Windows 7 is really different. It has more functionality, a better interface, and, if you keep it configured/managed, much better security than previous Microsoft operating systems.
Here is another fact about Windows 7: It is coming to your enterprise, sooner or later. And, since its functionality/features/security are an improvement over XP and older systems and since many of the issues with Vista seem to have been addressed, I think we should be accelerating Windows 7 into the enterprise.
And if you are running a small business like me then maybe your primary system should be a Mac. But the enterprise user desktop battle is over and the future is Windows 7. In fact, from what I’ve seen, the future is good enough that I believe all enterprise CTOs should be building their transition plans to Windows 7 now.
The bigger the enterprise the harder it can be to transition to a new system. There are large numbers of applications that have to be tested and some parts of the organization may have old hardware that needs to be updated before new OS’s can be fielded. So this is not going to happen overnight. But moving faster to Windows 7 will better support enterprise users and the mission and that is pretty compelling.
