Okay, I couldn’t resist checking out one of our CRM 2011 Online instances in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. I am really pleased how well it works with IE 10 in that environment considering there hasn’t even been a whisper of talk about getting it ready for Win8. Although we can only suspect that the CRM Team has been hard at work on it as soon as they got their hands on an internal copy for testing.
While rummaging through the connection this morning I observed some cosmetic changes and a few bugs. Well not really even bugs since Win8 is just previewing in Beta now and no one is proposing that running CRM in it now is something you should event think about.
In any event I am collecting for fun a few screen shots of what I have discovered up to this point.
FYI – The fooling around I did (I wouldn’t call it testing) was done on a regular desktop machine after installing the default Consumer Preview without applying any edits to the system configuration – definitely a 100% out of the box environment applied to one of our 30 day trials of CRM 2011 Online.
