Gartner: 2009 IT Spending Decline Worst Ever

The good news is that things should pick up in 2010, but here's the bad news (if you're ready for it) from the Wall Street Journal article linked above:

"While spending growth is expected next year, spending won't return to 2008 levels until 2012."

Oh dear. That doesn't sound like good news at all. Well, at least things won't get any worse than they are now...right? Right?
