You overlook another compelling reason behind software use & acquisition of new software, corporate personality notwithstanding: legacy data and interoperability. No matter how much one desires to be the Pioneer or Early Adopter, some choices must be made based on what you need to bring along. It has nothing to do with "admitting that their decision to choose that product was wrong", as you claim for the Wary Majority. I can't see anyone with legacy data getting anywhere near ROI in month ten & dumping the software. What's your IT time's impact on ROI then? It's not always worth the fight of being first when you end up having to be not only the beta testers but the alpha testers of the software while still trying to get work done. Many have decided that it's a much less traumatic transition to wait for a couple of releases before joining in. Yes, we need the Pioneers and Early Adopters, but they won't & can't always be the same people/companies all the time. Some get burned, or burned out, and gladly join the ranks of Wary Majority or Late Comers.
