Right now, Microsoft is focusing on the consumer market by getting Windows 7 out in time for the holiday season and announcing price points compatible with recession-era budgets. However, an even bigger constituency is the business community -- and after the debacle that was Vista, it is understandable to wonder how eagerly it will embrace Windows 7. There are indications that the business community is not waiting with open arms for Windows 7 -- despite the pent-up demand likely among firms that stayed put with XP.

Hopefully these very same businesses that do not have open arms will also try Linux. It's a very viable options for today's businesses, and can save hundreds of thousands of dollars, time, and just overall headaches of everyday computer use.
