Gartner tells enterprises to dump Windows 8.1 deployment plans

Gregg Keizer | June 19, 2015
With Windows 10 about to ship and Windows 8 largely panned, it's not a surprise that Gartner has recommended that enterprises skip the latter and migrate directly to the former from Windows 7.

"Until you're ready to support Windows 10, which isn't tomorrow, you have to downgrade," Kleynhans said of the practice where organizations with Software Assurance, the annuity-style program that Microsoft sells, reimage new devices with older OSes. "But they've been downgrading new PCs with Windows 8.1 anyway, so they'll just continue that process. Until they take it to Windows 10."
