Listen: Microsoft Explanation of the Future of the Windows 10 App Platform
"So there's this fluid framework which which we gotta talk about a little bit but is Microsoft trying to make DWP APPs anymore. Are they trying to make sixty four bit apps arm are they just like saying screw it. We're only GONNA do classic classic Windows APPs because that's what they decided with one note or are they making Web APPs. Are they doing all the above. Tom Just please tell me the answer so I can stop wondering if new damaged but as as as anything mark sold is far more complicated but I I think the overall phase that the udub stuff I was for a different era is for when they go off. The phone will run on exploits. They had this vision of an APP third everywhere hence universal. So so do you have any. PM sorry for the universal windows platform pro fights platform. Yeah and so the idea was you could write once run anywhere but it's you make an APP you put it in the win in the Microsoft store and it'll work on windows tablets windows laptops and also windows phones and you can you can inex- votes on hold on an xbox and Hololens and and You know it has a consistent across all these things and it's a beautiful dreamworld and they got they got you know tens of developers to do it and and so the majority of that dream has gone away by the phone. The phone is gone away. That was the key bridge and the stuff is just like yeah whatever and Holland still develop him. mm-hmm we'll see what happens The other part of it is that these things only run on windows ten and they had millions of people's to ease seven so to convince even enterprise up developers to re fat to their apps into this is just. This is not gonNA happen when it can't run on the vast majority desktops right. So I think that's kind of held held the legacy of of the enterprise and stuff we might not always wholesome back on everything because they were trying to appease everything for business just that's just the nature of their business And I think that's what we're seeing now so like the one stuff. They announced this week in the announced basically one note 2016 which is a desktop is coming back to life and it's going to get a bunch of features awesome. Yeah if you're not familiar. There's there's one twenty sixteen hanging around and then they made the new like WBZ basically version of one note that was like the future and like if you had a surface pro and you like tap the screen and it would open up that version of one note and like I think yeah and so it was like an. It's really nice. WPRO is like one of the the was in fact the APP that I recommended as the Best S. note taking AP Windows in general being one note best note taking APP especially for Cross platform and so I was expecting them. Okay well eventually. What they're GONNA do is they're going to get all office onto this new platform? It's going to be great They just need to add a few more features and maybe some stuff like fall by the wayside when they make the transition. And that's okay. Because life goes on but instead they just totally like backtracked and retrenched. And I said Yeah that things done. We're just going back to the old 2016 version of one note to go along with the old versions of office. It's very confusing. Yeah so they feel will they can His the magic obeys underlying Kobe's think they're going to bring a bunch enthuse cool new features. It's this old desktop right. But I don't really know what's going to happen into the new play. They say it's going to be still exist. You know y mice of loves having to APPS RAVINE IS Internet explorer edge. Yeah paps there's like Windows Mail and outlook proper outlook. So it's just a phase can be another one of those scenarios I and I love it but underlying with this is that a year ago I think it was. They said they were going to put their new touch friendly UW versions of office. This which are really nice as well. Those things launch in like less than a second they crazy basic. They just use them every day. It's not the word you used. Those are on hold and they were going to take us a win for you to the desktop and Web Yep and the section was one note until now so I feel like they are going to focus a hell a heck of a lot on the web for the stuff that they were trying to achieve review. WBZ original dream and everything else. I like you know the legacy and keeping their business customers happy desktop down for two allowing devs to just kind of go wilde dewey one in like that's I I think the thing now just do we need to do to get your APP store. Whatever yeah"
