Make New Habits with New IE VMs in the New YearJanuary 07, 2015
Happy New Year! Time to start working on self improvement and developing new habits.
Not sure what habits to work on? Well, I’ll give you one: Test your application in IE.
Isn’t Spartan Replacing IE?
Who knows. Maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. The important thing to note though that whatever fate IE has, it’s not just going to disappear overnight.

Spartan or no Spartan, IE has a presence that will stick around one way or another. So you should probably test it to make sure it works.
Couple of Improvements
With the new VMs out, there have been a few changes for the good. More specifically:
- They use ZIP files rather than RAR
- New download options (single download or multiple)
- Upgrades to new versions of IE are turned off by default
Plus, all the OS updates through until November are installed, so you’ll pretty much good to go as soon as they are downloaded.
There are new VMs out and this is your chance to start testing your application properly, which needs to include IE whether or like it or not.
Thanks for Playing. ~ DW
