IT expert and author Brian Posey thinks that despite all the love for Windows 7, many will in fact stick with good old XP. Why? He offers 10 good reasons.
Many fear that XP product support will vanish, but Posey points out that official support will be around for five more years. XP also doesn't need a lot of PC horsepower, which is a huge advantage over Vista. (But Redmond Report readers have told me that Windows 7 runs great on low-end machines, so I'm not sure I side with Posey on this one.)
Brian also touts XP's compatibility, but I think Windows 7's XP Mode squashes that advantage.
However, recent research backs up Posey's claims, showing that many of you will drag your Windows 7 feet. What are your Windows 7 plans? Send details to [email protected]
