Nearly forty-two percent of businesses now favor Windows 7 as an OS, and with the continual improvements to this software as a whole, it’s certainly not hard to see why. Still out of the Windows 7 loop? Here are the three top reasons many businesses are turning to this platform over every other choice.

IT Departments See Windows 7 As A Stable Platform.

Unlike Windows Vista, Windows 7 has had rave reviews since it came out. Many IT departments see this reception as a positive sign, especially if they’re still running on XP. Because the operating system has maintained those positive reviews for the past several months, more and more businesses are inclined to upgrade to this platform than they were with Windows Vista.

Windows 7 offers the same code base for both the server and the client, and that’s a real plus for understaffed IT departments.

It’s a bonus for Microsoft as well because it means simplified testing, and for business customers, it spells a simplified maintenance plan, which is a must in today’s already stretched climate. One service pack works for both the server and the client when it comes to updates, and what business isn’t looking to simplify IT?

Slow starts are a thing of the past.

What hampered Vista was the sheer size of the OS itself. Microsoft took its time developing Windows 7 to help slim things down and ensure compatibility at every turn. Moreover, they updated the Service Control Manager so that activities like joining and Active Directory domain are possible instead of making everything start as soon as the machine is turned on.

The bottom line is that businesses that did upgrade to Vista found disappointment on a routine basis, and those that didn’t seriously need an update from XP systems. Fortunately, Windows 7 seems to serve the needs of both parties quite well.
