This IDC study takes a deep look at Microsoft's Windows 7 product and considers the potential for this product to accelerate the lagging adoption of current-generation Microsoft client operating environment (COE) product aboard new PC shipments.

"Windows 7 offers a number of important new capabilities that will allow it to achieve better success than its predecessor, Windows Vista. IDC believes that Windows 7 will be successful overcoming many, if not most, of the challenges that Windows Vista faced in the market," said Al Gillen, program VP, Operating Environments, at IDC.
