I have worked with various incarnations of pre-release software installed on development machines. Getting the right combination of tools and versions isn't very straightforward. If you ever wondered which version of Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012, Office Developer Tools and other Add-ons to install (and from where) read on.
The obvious golden rule is not to mix RC and RTM versions of Windows Server, Visual Studio and SharePoint Developer Tools. Choose one and then stick to it. And please don't underestimate the Cloud option. It is great if you want to try out the new Apps model and you are not that keen on setting up the Infrastructure, App domains or have enough HW to run VMs. Everything is set up for you in the cloud!
