I've been using Windows 8 as one of my main desktop machines the last week or so and I've made an interesting observation.

GroupWise 2012 SP1 client works ok, I've unfortunately had it crash on me a few times. 

So I decided to try and use the native Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 8 against GroupWise Datasync. They both support Exchange Active Sync.  And guess what? So far, they work perfectly with Datasync.  I was actually surprised at how well they work.   You wouldn't even know it was talking to a GroupWise system as oppose to an Exchange system.  

Now if I could only get an EAS client for Mac OSX I'd be a happy camper!
