    During Microsoft's Build conference earlier this year the company announced their software Bridges for developers. Now the future of one of those bridges is uncertain.
    These tools were to help developers port their software to Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile and were broken down into four projects, including:

    [LIST][*]Project Westminster - For porting Web apps[*]Project Centennial - For portingClassic Win32 apps[*]Project Islandwood - For porting iOS apps[*]Project Astoria - For emulating Android apps[/LIST]

    The idea behind the bridges is to aid in closing the so-called 'app gap' on Windows and Windows Phone. However, while consumers would reap the benefits, Windows developers were not at all pleased with the announcement. The reason comes down to Project Astoria, which was the most controversial due to its implementation.
