Windows 7 and VS 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see that I can install VS 2012 RC on my windows 7 box.

    Can I also write and test Metro apps?  I understand to run them they need to be deployed on Windows 8, but can they be written using the WinRT framework?

    I don't want to re-image my development box to W8 until it's been fully released but I want to learn how to write metro apps. (The main issue is that my W7 box is on my work domain and in order for my personal W8 laptop to get anywhere, it's got to be joined to the domain.  So it's useless for me at work)
