Microsoft could announce the compatibility of Android apps with Windows 10 . This is what suggests Paul Thurrott, generally well informed of some projects of the publisher. If ad in this sense there is the conference Build 2015 which opens tonight in San Francisco, for an audience of developers, seems a logical place.
Whether one is planning to use Windows 10 on their smartphone, tablet or PC’s, everyone would be able to run Android apps. Especially for smartphones that would offset the dryness of the software offer. BlackBerry has already done so for similar reasons and without her fortune do was diametrically changed.
” Suicide “,” defeat “,” slap for developers “Paul Thurrott has no word quite hard to analyze the consequences of this potential ad The blogger sees more disadvantages for Windows of the future benefits over the long term. For him, far from bringing to the faithful of Windows the Android platform, this would only strengthen them in their choice of platform from Google.
For developers Windows it would be the negation of the efforts they have undertaken to create universal applications for Windows 10. A very bad also reward their loyalty despite attracting huge platforms that became iOS and Android.
Faced with this rumor that seems to take for a fact soon acquired he concluded in a tone quite disillusioned
The ability to run Android applications on Windows – Ultimate surrender – is not a “victory” nor a positive development. It is a defeat, an inevitable suicide. And it will make Windows even less important than it already is. For me. For you. For the rest of the world. And that’s really regrettable. One of the things I always really like about Windows 10 is the emphasis that is put on the desktop computer. This is where I come from, that’s what I love the most when it comes to technology. I look forward to look at me again on issues related to the PC, all these things that I have had little opportunity to address in recent years. But it is increasingly clear that the traditional PC market took over the management of workstations it 20 years ago: a niche market to meet the needs of users sharp, like those in the content creation. This is something that suits me, at least I think. But it is also much less public oriented. And it will be a difficult transition which, I believe, will be accelerated by the ability to run Android applications on Windows.
