Have you noticed the new icon in CRM 3.0?

I love product logos, but unfortunately Microsoft CRM does not have a logo. Actually, none of the Microsoft Business Solution products have a logo. However, Microsoft CRM 1.2 did make heavy use of this icon:

I have noticed that Microsoft CRM 3.0 now uses this new icon (a lot of times in places where the old icon used to be):

Microsoft CRM 3.0 Icon

I suspect they made this change so that the Microsoft CRM 3.0 icon would be compatible with the XP and Office guidelines (because the 1.2 icons were not compatible).

What do you think? Which one do you prefer?
