Six out of 10 businesses won't upgrade to Windows 7 , says ScriptLogic.

According to Reuters, research by the server management firm, revealed that 35 percent of the companies that will avoid purchasing Microsoft's new operating system when its launched on October 22, admitted it was in a bid to save money.

A further 39 percent said they had no plans to introduce Windows 7 into their organisation due to concerns over compatibility with existing applications.

ScriptLogic also said that only 5.4 percent of companies will deploy Windows 7 by the end of 2009, while 34 percent will wait until the end of 2010 to deploy the system.
