People like you and me will certainly be quicker than the bulk of the industry because for us it is a relatively small investment (especially with an OEM edition) and we do not mind to learn new things.
Another big market will probably be the netbooks. I understand that they will come out with a completely new and much more powerful hardware line (CPU and Chipset) and that combined with an SSD might give those toys a boost in combination with Win7.
