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

Huawei at the heart of the Chinese foreign minister's visit to Europe

Expected in Italy this Tuesday, August 25, the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs begins a tour in five European countries, including France. This is Wang Yi's first overseas visit since the Covid-19 outbreak. Preserving multilateralism should be on the agenda, as should the reorganization of global supply chains. But the hottest topic will undoubtedly be the awarding of contracts for 5G, from which Chinese telecom giant Huawei is gradually being pushed aside in Europe. 

Huawei at the heart of the Chinese foreign minister's visit to Europe

The Chinese foreign minister will try to stem the tide of anti-Huawei regulations, which are slowly blocking the 5G route for the Chinese telecom giant in Europe.

Close to the American position, the United Kingdom is not on the program. London has already banned the purchase of new Huawei equipment from next December.

The first stage of the official tour of the Chinese Foreign Minister is to take place in Italy, the only country on the list to have officially integrated the Chinese infrastructure project of the "New Silk Roads", recalls our correspondent in Beijing, Zhifan Liu.

Germany to decide Huawei's fate in September

Wang Yi will have to convince his Italian counterpart not to exclude Huawei from the development of 5G, a world leader in the field, but presented as close to the communist power.

After Italy, Wang Yi will also travel to Norway, where operator Telenor has preferred Sweden's Ericsson to Chinese Huawei, then to the Netherlands, which plan to ban certain operators from critical parts of their network.

Another obstacle foreseen in France where the government has an ambivalent position, no total ban on Huawei but non-renewable authorizations of less than 5 years, which threatens the profitability of the Chinese equipment manufacturer's investments. Wang Yi’s final stop: Germany, which is due to decide Huawei’s fate in September.

Next summit with Xi Jinping

The first official visit since the epidemic spread is also intended to reconnect with Europe at a time when relations between Beijing and the United States are increasingly strained.

China sees this stay as an opportunity to promote multilateralism to restart the world economy while the communist power, eager to demonstrate the superiority of the Chinese health model, has scalded several European chanceries. An offensive attitude symbolized by the establishment in the middle of the summer of a freedom-killing national security law in Hong Kong.

These meetings should also help prepare the next summit in mid-September between European leaders and President Xi Jinping, which should revolve around a trade agreement between the EU and the second world power.
