Three out of four companies still use Windows XP.  They don’t want the hassle of upgrading.

To combat that, Microsoft has teamed up with Laplink to offer free copies of “PCMover” to any company moving up to Windows 7. PCMover moves programs from XP over to the new operating system, so you don’t have to reinstall them. The free deal, called the “MoveNow” program,  starts July 19 and runs through September 30.

Here’s a bit more info:

  • MoveNow is for companies that buy software through Ingram Micro U.S., a big distributor.
  • The average company saves $300 per PC by not having to reinstall programs.
  • It doesn’t matter if the migration takes place between unlike computers, such as 32 bit and 64 bit.
  • PCmover Business is a version of the program that runs on a USB key, so you don’t have to install it on every PC before making the move.

    Use a Mac, but have old programs I refuse to let go such as ACT!, so I use Parallels. Several old programs won’t run on newer Windows, have to keep a box with XP1, for a web design program that is still easier/better than any others.
