    Forrester finds mixed prospects for Windows 8 in the enter


    There's mixed news for Windows 8's prospects in the enterprise, according to new information from Forrester Research.

    From the IT hardware buyer's perspective, the news isn't positive. "The first is that Windows 8 is seeing roughly half of the interest from IT hardware decision-makers that Windows 7 saw at the same point in its release cycle," according to a November 15 blog post from Forrester analyst David Johnson.

    If they can tweak it a bit and maybe fix up the desktop a bit they can get the enterprise to get on board. Maybe no metro start screen so the enterprise users can get to work right away.
