+ - Did Vista break the upgrade treadmill?->

Submitted by TropicalCoder
TropicalCoder (898500) writes "Windows 7 has been launched, but there is no corporate rush to replace XP. When you include replacement hardware, admin costs, application testing, and replacing incompatible apps, Gartner's VP of research, Michael Silver, believes that in a hypothetical organization with 2,500 Windows users, the cost of upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 will run $1,035 to $1,930 per user." Eric Knorr, InfoWorld
Perhaps this might explain the lack of enthusiasm? ...but are there any realistic alternatives to upgrading to Windows 7?"
