Windows 7: resellers divided

17 Jul 09

The poll showed an almost fifty/fifty split of resellers for and against deployment on launch. A similar poll on sister site IT Brief showed that IT decision makers are a little less ambivalent (and possibly less excited) with 64.3% saying they were not planning to deploy the new operating system.

Of the nearly 50% of resellers interested in deploying the new product, 30% had already downloaded the release candidate.

There is, of course, plenty of time still until the October 22nd launch and the Worldwide Microsoft Partner Conference 2009, which wrapped up on Thursday, is likely to ensure more converts, especially with the launch of Office 2010 in New Orleans earlier this week.
