Finally the moment developers have been waiting for....VS 11 Beta release! 

Developers around the world are excited to have the opportunity to get their hands on this amazing new software so they can start building Windows 8 Metro-style apps!  VS 11 supports five languages right out of the box: C#, Visual Basic, F#, C++ and JavaScript.
