Windows 7, the company's most recent operating system software has risen in use by approximately 11% in the past year, surpassing Windows Vista usage.

For an enterprise client with thousands (or tens of thousands) of PCs, upgrading off XP could easily be the most difficult and expensive IT deployment a company will undertake all year, this one of the reasons why most of them are refusing to upgrade.

Although I can be a Linux fanboy, they could cut costs by using their old XP machines incapable of running Windows 7 as thin clients.

I think when it comes the time Windows XP will no longer maintained by updates probably it will dramatically dropped off the percentage.

Actually, it might take some time even after the updates stop for corporates to upgrade, mostly because money. This is why many corporations refused to update from 98, even after updates stopped being released. Nevertheless, some people will be in trouble after updates stop releasing, even though Windows 7 would probably be more targeted than it is now.
