Vista's 'Bounce' To Add 100,000 U.S. IT Jobs, Says Report [informationweek.com]

The IDC report also estimated that the total job impact of Vista would be in the 1.8 million range over the course of 2007. The vast majority of those jobs, however, will be carryovers from earlier editions of Windows, Burk acknowledged, notably Windows XP. About 100,000 new positions will be directly related to Vista.


The operating system also will create a pass-along effect -- much like dollars spent on local tourism -- that will produce $18 in the Windows ecosystem for every dollar that Microsoft makes on Vista. The majority of that 18-1 spending will be on hardware: $9.75 for every $1 Microsoft earns. That jibes with recent reports that said that half of current business PCs won't be able to run Vista.
