Are Enterprises Moving to Vista?

Or maybe the better question is: Why would they? With Windows 7 due out some time within the next 12 months, it's hard to imagine why companies would buy into Vista rather than waiting for what looks like a better operating system. But a recent Forrester survey suggests that while Vista has tiny market share right now, almost half of companies responding were planning to start Vista deployments by the end of this year.

Granted, it might be a big jump between XP and Windows 7, but it's hardly an impossible one to make. At this point, sticking Vista in between just seems like an odd move.
