add support for Windows Store apps written in F# (FSharp) ... to show that F# can be superior to C# even when it comes to more common tasks like GUI development.

This is the single biggest thing really stopping me from being serious about F#. Mixed-language efforts work, to be sure, but largely we're left with "why bother?".
This suggestion is two years old -- it needs a response.

Xamarion Studio supports writing Android apps in F#, but Visual Studio doesn't support writing Windows (phone/store) apps in F#... We live in a remarkable time.
I could write completely project only with F# but I need to manually fix project file (You can see example in MSDN examples: Fsharp Webcam )
Would be nice that we can add XAML file like resource to F sharp class library project …. I gave 3 votes ....

WPFだとTypeProvider で作れるのだけど、Windows Store アプリは XAML からコード生成してしまって F# で開発できません。適当に Build targets を直せばいけそうな気もするのですが、どうなのでしょう？

These days, MS is telling everyone to write universal apps. But from F# it seems that it currently is impossible to call the new APIs directly. Please MS, if you want us to write universal apps, make it possible to call the new APIs from F#.
I voted 3.Interaction to Xaml editor may not be necessary,but anyway I wanna write VM with WinRT API call in F#.

You already can create Windows Store app but not visually, using Portable class library.
I gave 3 votes too.I wanna use F# to write VM layer for store app.I can use PCL,but sometime I feel it's good if I can use F# to access WinRT API directory.Just library project is enough for me.

Agreed, but I don't think a UI framework is a UI framework unless it has Formlets anymore.

Gave 3 precious votes for this suggestion. WebSharper is going to support end to end metro style apps development in F# but the more the merrier.
