Microsoft has announced Project Reunion - its latest attempt to simplify Windows apps.

As you may know there are two types of Windows apps at present - traditional Win32 desktop apps you install from anywhere and Windows Store apps - known as UWP or Universal Windows Platform apps.

And now we're unifying the Windows platform, allowing for seamless integration across both Win32 and UWP apps using Project Reunion."

Kevin Gallo, corporate vice president of Windows, said that Microsoft wants to "make it easier to build great apps that work across all the Windows 10 versions and devices people use".

That means devs can create apps for the latest version of Windows 10 without worrying too much if it'll work on older versions because Microsoft will ensure compatibility.
