For IT administrators everywhere, the clock is ticking down toward an April 2014 deadline for the end of Windows XP support.
That means that Windows 7 migrations are picking up steam and beginning to achieve critical mass. According to market researcher Net Applications, Windows XP is no longer
the desktop operating system of choice, as its market share among installed desktops fell below 50 percent by the end of 2011.
But as many IT organisations inevitably discover during migration to a new operating system, a number of hurdles could make the move to Windows 7 far from a slam-dunk
proposition. Heading the list of technical issues is application compatibility, particularly for the large number of legacy and homegrown applications in use on the average network.
