Gartner 'clarifies' Windows Vista advice

A misunderstanding of meaning has forced Gartner to restate earlier advise apparently telling customers to postpone upgrading to Microsoft's planned Windows Vista operating system.

Gartner is reportedly now telling users who are still running Windows 2000 that they should upgrade as soon as possible to Microsoft's latest client operating system.

The analyst firm felt its earlier recommendations had been "misinterpreted in some instances". Gartner reportedly advised users they shouldn't rush to upgrade to Windows Vista - due in 2006 - and most could "safely" hold back until 2008. Gartner 'clarifies' Windows Vista advice | Channel Register
