    I would doubt it natively, but Project Centennial will allow devs to recompile w32 programs to UWP, so there is hope.

    They would still be w32 apps, just packaged for the Windows Store.

    You'll probably have to wait for an x86 based windows phone.

    I was under the thought they weren't? Maybe I'm mistaken...

    from what I understood, it literally is just packaging up the apps for distribution on the store, so a traditional install is no longer needed and everything needed for the app to run is self contained.

    Talking desktops....

    That's the issue I can't understand. If a w32 app is just a store app then it's can't be self contained, it has to access DLL's (although they could be contained I guess?) and what about registry access?

    I don't really know the nuts and bolts about how it will work, but I've been 'clearing' up after uninstalling w32 programs for years, that's why I like UWP
