On a new article at the Windows Blog, Kevin Gallo, explains that the vision with Windows 10 is to make a unified core of the operating system that enables programmers to write an app and run it everywhere with one set of business logic and one user interface that works on mobile, desktop, console, holographic, and on IoT devices. Apps built with the new model will be delivered from one unified Windows Store within one package, and developers will be able to target one or all type of devices. The new app model allows developers to create app features targeting specific form factors. This means that a developer can create a set of features to appear on mobile, but a desktop computer may include additional features suited to the device, while the app will have the same look and feel across devices, something Microsoft calls “Adaptive UX”.

Furthermore, the software maker is simplifying how programmers design apps to make it easier to integrate speech with Cortana, inking, gestures, and user gaze, including pushing notification to the new Action Center, on Windows 10 and Windows 10 for phones. Another interesting feature is that Microsoft will provide a way to package a website into a “web app” using Project Spartan rendering engine, which will also offer access to the set of Universal APIs like notification, calendar, camera, and more.
