Run Visual Studio on Microsoft Surface?


  • It seems like Windows 8 is all about developers. But I didn't realize a small thing: can Visual Studio 2012 be launched on Windows Surface ?

    Hardware specs are absolutely enough, the whole ideology looks like leading to "programming everywhere", there are a few simple IDEs even for iPad, we'll certainly have some dev tools when Ubuntu will be installed on Surface. But what about Visual Studio itself? Is there any info?

    It's not very comfortable to develop everything on Surface, but sometimes the idea touches you in the bus, and it's nice to have a full-featured tool with all your current projects at your hand.

  • No idea about Surface with Win RT, but you will be able run VS on Surface with Win 8 Pro for sure. At least this is what I am going to do after release.
