According to Windowslatest reports, when Microsoft Windows 8 was released, it planned to build a bridge between the two fields of modern/traditional computing. In addition to existing Win32 applications, Windows 8 also has the ability to run modern applications, which will provide a better multitasking experience on touch hardware. Nearly nine years later, Microsoft once again tried to erase the gap between Windows 10 UWP and Win32 through Project Reunion.
Microsoft said that with Project Reunion, it will unify access to existing Win32 and UWP APIs and separate them from the operating system . Therefore, users will be able to experience more “modern features” in traditional desktop applications in the future, including access to the built-in sharing panel of Windows 10.
Microsoft has confirmed that it will introduce “unified window space” for UWP and Win32 applications . This will allow developers to adopt APIs that can provide a consistent window experience between UWP or Win32 applications.
Microsoft said that as part of the project, developers can access Windows 10’s window API, which will allow Microsoft and developers to use the same features and APIs to create applications (UWP or Win32).
Naijatechnews understands that with the help of Project Reunion, Microsoft will allow developers to use Win32 window functions, and the company will still provide a unified API to improve consistency across applications.
In short, UWP and Win32 applications will eventually have access to all layers of the new window API. This can solve the consistency problem and repair the window experience of UWP applications, achieving the unity of the two.
