    In this video you suggest running Windows8 Pro as a VM is not a good idea as the phone emulator also needs Hyper-V; meaning you would have a VM inside a VM. Well it may be debatable on whether or not it is a good idea to run a VM within a VM, but it is certainly possible. I am running Windows8 Pro as a VM and it also runs Hyper-V with VS2012 phone emulation. Admittedly, I needed to edit config files and setup my VM processor as a dual core; but it does work.

    Maybe im in the wrong place, i tought this videos were to show developers how to build apps for windows phone. I know how to write C#, ibe written code for windows for years, but i want to know how to write windows phone apps!
    But you just layout some "principles" and then skip ahead to the completed code ("the next iteration") without any guidance or explaining on how to do it, because "it would be tedious"!?
    How im i supposed to learn how things are done in windows phone, if you dont show anything because "its tedious"?
    Maybe im supposed to watch another set of videos before this ones?
