ITunes is coming to the Windows Store, Apple Music and all

A year ago at Build, Microsoft made headlines when they announced a tech preview of Bash on Ubuntu for Windows. The only apps you can run on Windows 10 S are those vetted by Microsoft and available in the Windows Store.

Beyond the Windows Store implications, it's interesting to see Apple refuse to give any ground to Spotify as the two streaming music services battle for your attention.

Windows Store apps that browse the web must use HTML and JavaScript engines provided by the Windows Platform. 1507 is the original build of Windows 10 whose support is being dropped.




Unlike most other years, Microsoft kicked off its conference by focussing on developers rather than products during its keynote speech. Neon has now been officially announced, and it has an official new name: the Microsoft Fluent Design System. Meaning if users want to take advantage of the OS they will have to update it to the latest version of Windows 10. Of course, it will be just as a legacy app running inside a modern window, without any of the modern design and extras. Windows Store apps are often recognizable for their Windows Metro design looks (flat colors, blocky design). At the event, Microsoft claimed that with Windows, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Azure together offer developers more than a billion opportunities to connect their innovations with Microsoft customers. All Windows Store content is certified by Microsoft to help ensure a quality experience and keep your devices safer. The controller will work without requiring the placement of sensors in a room. The refresh follows Microsoft's first Creators Update, which started rolling out to Windows machines last month. "We're not discussing that", said Windows Developer corporate Vice President Kevin Gallo. While the previous method of installing Bash on Windows 10 was not all that cumbersome, by bringing the bits needed to get up and running with Ubuntu inside of Windows 10 to the store, the process becomes significantly easier. There is no need to install hardware on the walls around you.

"We are building Windows to be the platform that empowers everyone to create", Terry Myerson, Microsoft's top Windows executive, wrote in a blog post. Acer will sell a Windows Mixed Reality headset and motion controller bundle priced at $399 United States dollars this holiday season.
