Interestingly, many of those who've deployed or are planning to deploy Office
2007 are doing so on Windows XP, and aren't waiting to evaluate Windows Vista.
In the survey, CDW's David Cottingham wrote that "many customers deploying
the 2007 Microsoft Office system are finding that the user benefits are substantial
with both Windows Vista and Windows XP." Yet another slap, this time from
Office 2007 users, at Windows Vista.
Cottingham contends that users are finding the graphic interface of Office
2007 more "visually intuitive" and a "considerable" improvement
over those of its most recent predecessors. After adjusting for a day or two,
he writes that CDW's customers find they're more productive with Office 2007
and won't go back.
CDW will publish another survey on Windows Vista adoption in the fourth quarter
of 2007. The complete survey report on Office 2007 adoption can be seen here.
