I've been meaning to write this post for a few weeks now. With the announcement of the F# 2.0 standalone tools update for Visual Studio 2010 Shell, I have updated the pure-F# templates to support the IntegratedShell SKU. This includes templates F# Windows App (WPF, MVVM) and F# Web Application (Silverlight). Note: The F# Web Application template includes a C# application for the purpose of providing a hosting example. This C# hosting application will not be created successfully when using only the F# 2.0 standalone tools with Visual Studio 2010 Shell. Since this is not essential for the development of the actual Silverlight application, I decided to include IntegratedShell SKU support for this template with this as a known limitation.
