As many as 44 per cent of corporate Windows XP users are considering migrating to Linux or Apple-based systems to avoid Vista, a survey by systems management company KACE has revealed.

On top of that, 90 per cent of those questioned said that they are concerned about migrating to Vista. Only 13 per cent said that they can see themselves moving all of their systems on to Vista.

However, it may not be all bad news for Microsoft, as 89 per cent of those who said that they were considering alternative operating systems said that they would consider running software designed to help manage several different operating systems under one interface, suggesting that it may only be Vista that is causing businesses, and Microsoft, headaches.
