According to Gartner, companies will skip Windows 8 because they just started the migration to Windows 7. And I totally agree. From my own experience as an IT Manager, I just took the decision to migrate all our Windows XP Machines to Windows 7. The process is tedious and we found a lot of problems with printers drivers. So my experience confirms what Gartner points, companies are fatigued from a recent upgrade and will not jump into this new version. This will have a huge impact in Microsoft's plans and shows that releasing new Operating Versions every 2 or 3 years is really a bad idea if you are aiming at the business market.
