Poll Results: Mac OS 9 Upgrade Plans

Poll Results: Mac OS 9 Upgrade Plans -- Last week's poll inquiring about your schedule for Mac OS 9 showed the TidBITS poll-going readership being more cautious than we had expected. Results were evenly split among those who planned to upgrade immediately (26 percent) and within 1 to 2 months (27 percent), with 3+ months being the most popular answer at 37 percent. Only 10 percent of readers had no plans to upgrade. Frankly, I would have expected more people to consider upgrading sooner - it's possible that people don't consider Mac OS 9's new features sufficiently compelling to upgrade before early adopters have identified any hidden problems and before compatible versions of popular utilities like RAM Doubler and StuffIt Deluxe are available.
