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

School closures: why many employees will not benefit from partial unemployment for childcare

If your child can no longer be accommodated at school due to a coronavirus case, you may be placed on short-time work to keep him or her, unless you can telecommute. Problem, teleworking lacks a clear legal framework to define it. 

 School closures: why many employees will not benefit from partial unemployment for childcare 

More than 2,000 classes closed ... The count given regularly by the Minister of Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, can give a number of parents a cold sweat. Faced with these closures, the Ministry of Solidarity and Health announced that parents who have to look after their children may be placed on partial unemployment. For this, they will have to prove that their child cannot be accommodated by the school but also that one of the two parents cannot telework.

On the notion of the impossibility of teleworking, the question remains unclear. At what point does an employer consider that teleworking is impossible? For certain professions whose presence on site is compulsory (reception function, commerce, hotel industry, etc.) the answer is unambiguous. But for others, such as office jobs, the question remains. In a statement the CGT warns: “No, we cannot telework while looking after our children”. The union considers that it is not possible to look after children while teleworking without risking living and working conditions. “The problem is that there is no legal framework to define teleworking, regrets Delphine Robinet, associate lawyer at Viajuris. The logic of the government is only to look at whether the position can be occupied remotely but without taking into account whether the employee lives in a white area with internet speed problems, or what is the size of his home or if his family situation allows it, ”she adds.



The definition of teleworking should therefore take into account whether one is really able to work or whether the tasks performed are carried out in degraded conditions. “Perhaps there should have been an age limit or / and a number of children. For example, we could have included the fact that it is not possible to telework from the moment when you have to look after your children at the same time if they are in primary or nursery school or if you have a disabled child. whose school is closed ”, recommends Sabrina Kemel, lawyer at FTMS. Such a message is unlikely to get through. The problem has already arisen during the confinement period when certain childcare stops were invalidated by health insurance. "The treatment was then done on a case-by-case basis, if for example you have children in kindergarten or three or more children to look after, finally the stops have been validated", explains Delphine Robinet.
