Project Latte: How Microsoft wants to integrate Android apps into Windows 10

Windows 10 may soon be able to run mobile apps designed for Android. Update on the technical details that allow this porting.  Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to run their Android apps on Windows 10 with little or no code changes. How? 'Or' What ? By packaging them as an MSIX app package format and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed " Latte ," according to Windows Central, which says it will go into production next year. Microsoft had already tried to put Android applications under Windows 10 with the Astoria project, which has since aborted. The Latte project is probably powered by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). But Microsoft will need to provide its own Android subsystem for Google's OS apps to actually work. Microsoft has announced that the WSL will soon be compatible with GPU acceleration, which should improve the performance of applications runnin

Canadian Senate imposes new suspension on Lynn Beyak

The Senate has decided to impose a second suspension on Lynn Beyak because of the derogatory letters to the First Nations which she published on her website. The senators approved a report from the standing committee on ethics and conflicts of interest which recommended that Ms. Beyak be suspended without pay for "the rest of the current term".
 
Canadian Senate imposes new suspension on Lynn Beyak

The decision was not unanimous, but the Senate did not publish the results of the vote.

Ms. Beyak was expelled from the Conservative caucus and was finally suspended without pay last May after refusing to remove the offensive letters from her website - a suspension that ended automatically when Parliament was dissolved for the federal elections in autumn.

The controversial senator apologized on Tuesday. Some of his former Conservative colleagues then wanted the ethics committee to reconsider the matter. A motion to this effect was rejected by 49 votes to 24.


The independent senators preferred to impose new sanctions against Ms. Beyak. She must also participate, at her own expense, in awareness-raising programs on racism against Aboriginal people.

"The success of such a program is necessary for its continued presence in the Senate," the report said.
