With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft is leaving no stones unturned in attracting developers to bring their apps on to their Windows 10 Platform. This new platform for Windows 10 was first started by supporting a new range of responsive applications called UWP Apps or Universal Windows Platform apps. At first, Microsoft wanted developers to target all the devices in the Windows ecosystem with this UWP platform but later they made it even more flexible by allowing developers to port their iOS apps using a bridge they called Project Islandwood and even their Win32 apps using a bridge called Project Centennial. Microsoft didn’t stop here, they allowed publishing of the Win32 Windows Classic Software to the Microsoft Store too, making it the main hub for everything that the user needs.
