    If your thinking of creating some Metro style apps for Win 8 then Microsoft has released the latest Visual Studio beta alongside the Win 8 consumer release:

    Visual Studio Express Edition is one of the most popular platforms designed for programming languages.

    The GUI looks very familiar for users with plenty of experience in the programming department, but rookies are probably experiencing headaches when opening this application.

    Fortunately, there is a very helpful online community that's ready to come to your aid with tips and tricks, but you still must have some basic skills in a programming language.

    Visual Studio Express Edition comes with features like multimonitor support (so you can drag and drop documents from one monitor to another), zoom (in editors or diagrams), navigation (through files, code, variables and methods; more efficient than the common search function), as well as Intellisense (Visual Studio's intuitive feature that simplifies your coding experience).

    In addition, you can find C++ and MFC features, multi-targeting support, F# integration, as well as easily create WindowsPresentation Framework (WPF) applications without having to code in XAML.

    So, you can create individual web applications (that can be deployed by using the One Click Publish feature), and design amazing Silverlight applications for a website.

    While Visual Studio Express Edition is running, CPU and memory resources are heavily used, so don't expect your computer to work in normal parameters. It's a complex program, after all.

    The bottom line is that if you are a serious user who proudly calls himself a programmer, then Visual Studio Express Edition should be at your fingertips. It's a must-have tool. And it's free!

    That's awesome. I'm already using Visual Studio 10 on my Windows 7 but I'm not sure if I should get it on my Windows 8 yet. Maybe when it's out of it's beta stage.

    Yes you should! As Microsoft Visual Studio also has their own enterprise edition which can really help people!
