Forrester: Windows 7 Early Adopters Were Satisfied Upgraders

Yesterday, Forrester’s JP Gownder published a blog post highlighting some data from two new reports on Windows 7 adoption and satisfaction. The reports show that by the end of 2009, a strong majority of US consumers were aware of Windows 7. Windows 7 hit the market at the end of October so it’s pretty great to see that within just 2 months after launch a large portion of US consumers knew about Windows 7. Forrester also found that consumers who adopted Windows 7 in Q4 were generally very satisfied with their Windows 7 PCs.

And finally, another interesting finding was around upgrades. People move to a new OS one of two ways: either by buying a new PC or upgrading an existing PC. In the past, most people simply purchased a new PC to get a new version of Windows. With Windows 7, the data in the reports show that upgrading existing PCs was a much stronger trend with Windows 7. In the end, the reports show that early adopters who upgraded to Windows 7 were quite satisfied. Exciting to see the progress!

    Just think if they didn't screw up the Family Pack Program how many thousands of more sales they would have.

    Bring back the Family Pack so everyday folks can afford to upgrade their multiple machines as well.

    I am partially satisfied. I would have been completely satisfied if MS hadn't messed up Windows Explorer and the shell in Vista and Windows 7.
