From How to: Set up an on-premises development environment for apps for SharePoint

Installation of SharePoint 2013 Preview is supported only on Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 x64 or Windows Server 2008 R2. If you want to develop apps for SharePoint for SharePoint 2013 Preview on Windows 7, you can sign up for an Office 365 Developer Site and develop apps remotely. See How to: Set up an environment for developing apps for SharePoint on Office 365 for the instructions to create this kind of development environment.

As I suggested in answer to Virtual Machine for Sharepoint 2013 one option is to use VHD Boot as the Hardware and software requirements for SharePoint 2013 Preview are pretty high.

Currently you can use Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate (RC) for free.

+1 for the boot to VHD advise. Very useful. –  Steve B Jul 18 '12 at 7:38

You can also get a trial of Windows Server 2008 R2 for free which lasts for 6 months.

You are out of luck. Unlike SP 2010, you cannot install SP 2013 on Windows 7 or any other client OS.

Your best options are:

I've been doing SharePoint 2013 Dev for a few weeks now remotely from Windows 7 on a Server 2008 R2 VM.

You ABSOLUTELY need at least a BARE MINIMUM of 8GB of RAM to run SP2013. You can probably get away with 4GB if you completely disable search and/or run SQL on a different server.
