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

 Unilever allocates $ 1.2 billion to replace petroleum derivatives in cleaning products

The Unilever Group will invest $ 1.2 billion by 2030 to reduce its CO2 emissions and those of its suppliers. It aims to eliminate fossil fuels from the production of its cleaning products.

Through a series of chemical reactions, the carbon compounds in petroleum are transformed into chemicals capable of removing oil stains. Switching off the use of these fossil fuels has been technically feasible for several decades at a high cost.

Unilever is the industry’s first major investor to replace these hydrocarbon derivatives with ingredients from wood, microbial fermentation or recycled carbon. 

The planned funding will mainly be used for research, for implementing the solutions found and for working with suppliers.

“What Unilever is trying to do is very comprehensive. With great ambition, he looks at the entire supply chain, "said Katy Armstrong, a researcher at the University of Sheffield working on carbon recycling.
