CIOs say they are in no rush to upgrade from XP

- Consumers may appear to be snapping up Windows 7, but large companies won't, according to CIOs interviewed this week.

IT leaders who spoke to Computerworld at the Society for Information Management's SIMposium 09 conference this week in Seattle say their companies remain almost completely running Windows XP on the desktop.

Despite the eight years that have passed since XP's release, they expressed little urgency to upgrade to Windows 7.
Peter Whatnell, CIO for Sunoco Inc., said the petroleum retailer won't move to Windows 7 for at least two years.

"There's nothing driving us to go to that new environment, because of the nature of our company and our industry," said Whatnell.
Sunoco has 8,500 employees, but only 1,000 have PCs. All of them run XP. Most were upgraded to Office 2003 only at the beginning of this year.
