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

The global gold supply will grow over the decade, supported by company mergers and high prices (Fitch)

Gold production will reach 133 million ounces in 2029, thanks to high prices and various mergers. This is what the Fitch agency predicts, which specifies that the increase will be supported mainly by Australia and Russia even if Africa will not be on the sidelines of this trend.

According to a new report from analysis firm Fitch Solutions, published this month of August, global gold production will experience an average annual growth of 2.5% over the decade, against 1.2% between 2016 and 2019. Scope notably through mergers between mining companies and an excellent price of the yellow metal on the world markets, the supply will reach 133 million ounces in 2029 against 106 million ounces this year.

According to the agency’s experts relayed by Mining Weekly, the two countries that will benefit the most from this situation are Russia and Australia, respectively 3rd and 2nd world producer. Australia is expected to experience average annual growth of 2.2% with gold production rising from 11.7 million in 2020 to 14.2 million ounces by the end of the decade. At the eastern European giant, growth will be stronger with an annual average of 3.7% expected. Production will therefore reach 15.5 million ounces in 2029 compared to 11.3 million ounces this year. 



At the same time, China, the world's largest producer, is expected to perform underperformance over the decade, notably due to stricter environmental rules and the closure of several small mines. Annual growth should therefore fall to 0.2% on average against 3.1% over the previous decade.

In America, but also in Africa, we can expect to see production also increase, due to the constant interest of investors in new projects and the substantial funds invested by the companies in gold exploration.
