Cool, grabbed a copy as I've been pondering the possibility of attempting a Metro app.

..So is this a standalone IDE, or an add-on for MSVS, or both?

No, it's controls for use in  Visual Studio.  I evaluated for work, but we ended up not using it because of politics, even though I liked it and the company better than the alternative.

Don't waste my time evaluating if the choice has already been made, please...  :-\

Thanks for the heads up!

Cool, I can work with it either way, thanks.

On a side note: I just got paged with a call from them (which I sent to voice mail), and as I type this I see an Email coming in from them ... Zoiks! I hate being attacked directly after a transaction...give me a friggin minute FFS ... It's not like I clicked the 'Send new BFF' button. If I need help with something I'll call...answering the phone then will impress me. This is just annoying.

Oh yeah... I think I mentioned that before in one of the threads I posted about the book offers.  They're very aggressive, and I had to get very rude to get them off my back.  Thankfully, I used a google number... but still.
