Install Visual Studio 2013 and I find that some Sharepoint 2010 templates are missing (eg. sequential workflow, state machine, etc).

Is it because of the Sharepoint server haven't been installed on my Window ? I am using Window 8. Should I install SharePoint + SQL Server on it ?

Yeah it's best to do SP 2010 development on a SharePoint server. However I strongly favor that server to be a Virtual Machine, rather than installing SharePoint on the dev box itself. There's potential for messing up your dev machine plus of course VM Snapshots allow you to try things out and revert.

I use VMWare Workstation, and install SharePoint and Visual Studio on that. I then have another environment that I deploy WSPs to, without Visual Studio installed.

You could also consider HyperV or some other virtualization product.

Sorry, do you mean the template will be available on Visual Studio if I install it on the SharePoint server, correct ?

Yes I've seen this before where not having SP 2010 locally meant Visual Studio didn't show the templates. Different from earlier versions.

My answer is yes, and consider using a VM. :)
