Not a Windows 8 machine, but you do want to start creating Store Apps … the possibilities.

There are two good workarounds when you want to start playing/ learning to develop Windows 8 Store Apps, but you aren’t able to due to a machine limitations or company policies.    1: Windows 8 Virtual Labs The first is accessible for everybody, but a bit limited.

Hands-on Visual Studio 2012 Workshops - What to do with your free Azure MSDN subscription.

I run workshops. Instead of boring lectures, I give the attendees the opportunity to get real hands-on experience and feel the scenario instead of listing only. Specially the Visual Studio 2012 ALM scenario’s are really nice, the attendees work together on a scenario like: code review, feedback, agile planning and testing.   I run these workshops with Azure Virtual Machines, every attendee has it’s own environment on Azure prepared and configured by me for that specific workshop. After I created an image (see: How to Capture an Image of a Virtual Machine) one day ahead of the workshop, I start creating Azure VM’s just before the workshop starts (see: Create a Virtual Machine)...

TFSPreview with a Windows Store Apps build on Azure

The Hosted Team Foundation Service build doesn’t support building Windows Store Apps. A lot of other environment are supported but Azure doesn’t allow you to run a Windows 8 Client. So, no Windows Store Apps build agent on Azure. You could setup a local machine with Windows 8, configure a build controller, agent and connect it to TFSPreview, will cost you a machine. Lucky, there is an easy way get this organized... Use the default Windows Server 2012 Azure Image … Although the documentation at: says : “Important  Windows Store app development is supported only on Windows 8.
