  2. Microsoft Adds Ability to Block Win32 Apps from Install on Windows 10

    Aren't pointers functions of the language? Or am I confusing pointers?

  3. Microsoft Adds Ability to Block Win32 Apps from Install on Windows 10

    That's actually a certainty already. Microsoft wants to create a competing product against Chromebook. I'm sure this is one of the features that bring them closer to that.

    UWP is "significantly slower" than Win32. Probably 10-30%. UWP is completely managed (memory pointers are forbidden) like .NET Framework is. They're very closely linked. UWP can be made to run on any processor architecture (ARM, x86, and AMD64 right now). I believe UWP has a path for emulating Win32 too (they demonstrated this in a Windows Phone 10 feature).

    Microsoft Adds Ability to Block Win32 Apps from Install on Windows 10

    I think Microsoft is aiming more for a 60/40 ecosystem where the majority of users are on UWP, because that's all they need, and the rest are professionals and power users that sparingly use UWP. I don't think Microsoft expects to eliminate Win32 any time soon simply because the performance differences make it impractical. Case in point: compare the UWP versions of Office programs to the Win32 version of Office. The former is good when you're mobile, the latter is good when you're stationary. The capabilities of the latter far exceed the former.
