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

Argentina defaults for the ninth time in its history

This new default is the ninth in the history of Argentina. In total, the country's debt reaches $ 324 billion, or almost 90% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Late Thursday evening, the government had already announced to extend for the second time the deadline it had set for restructuring, by designating June 2 as the new deadline. This extension of only ten days seems to show that the Argentine government and its creditors could be close to an agreement, although the new deadline is not necessarily final, as the government said on Thursday.

But if the government indicates that negotiations are on track, the main group of creditors of Argentina demanded however, Friday, "a direct and immediate discussion". "The group welcomes Argentina's expressed intention to work with creditors, but actions speak louder than words. In the past month, Argentina has had virtually no substantive communication with its creditors, "a group of several investment companies, including BlackRock and Fidelity, said in a statement.




In 2001, with a historic default of $ 100 billion, the country had experienced its worst social and economic crisis. Almost twenty years later, Argentina is once again in bad shape: the economy has been in recession for two years, inflation has peaked (53% in 2019) and poverty has continued to climb ( 33% in 2019).

The Covid-19 pandemic also severely slowed economic activity and forced the government to release funds to mitigate its effects on the most vulnerable residents and businesses.
