A new Visual Studio 2012 RC ALM Virtual Machine lets you try out the seven main scenarios supported by Visual Studio 2012. You also get 18 hands-on-labs / demo scripts and another 11 scenarios which were introduced in Visual Studio 2010. The virtual machine provides a single virtual environment for learning about or demonstrating a wide range of ALM capabilities.
You can download and install the RC of Visual Studio 2012 (and Team Foundation Server 2012, .NET Framework 4.5, etc.) and even use it in production with our “go live” license. But if you would like a fast way to understand what is new for application lifecycle management in this release, this virtual machine is pre-configured with all of the necessary software and sample data for you.
