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

Mozambique: Total finalizes loan record for African project

Total has finalized the $ 15 billion loan to mine gas in Mozambique. Several development finance institutions are the creditors of this fundraising operation, which is a record for a project in sub-Saharan Africa.

G Suite: Google is increasingly focusing on collaboration

The French energy group Total has finalized the mobilization by debt of $ 15 billion for the commissioning in Mozambique of a gas field on which it operates. The fundraising on which the French financial group Societe Generale worked as an advisor is a record of resources mobilized via debt, to finance a project in sub-Saharan Africa.

Beyond its record amount, it is above all the fact that this funding has been secured in a context of uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and a drop in hydrocarbon prices that has left its mark on analysts the most. The US import-export bank (Exim Bank) has reportedly contributed $ 5 billion to the loan. The other major funding institution is the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, which has contributed $ 3 billion.




The African Development Bank (AfDB) is expected to contribute up to $ 400 million and commercial banks are also cited in the mobilization of additional resources for the project, the cost of which is estimated at $ 20 billion. The conditions imposed by creditors are not known to the general public.

It is not excluded that the interest rates on the credits granted are high. Mozambique is indeed facing an armed insurgency which increases the level of risk perceived by investors.
