Microsoft announces Project Reunion to make Windows app development easier again

Microsoft today announced a major new initiative that will finally alleviate some of the persistent confusion around Windows app development. Project Reunion, as it is called, is meant to unify the Windows developer platform, which is currently broken up between Win32, which was long the standard way of building Windows app, and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), which Microsoft started betting on during the ill-fated Windows 8 era (you may remember UWP under the “Metro-style apps” monicker).
This is a move the company signaled at its 2019 developer conference when Microsoft developer platform chief Kevin Gallo already talked about how developers had to Microsoft that they would like it to “decouple many parts of the Universal Windows Platform so that you can adopt them incrementally.” And that’s pretty much what the company is now doing with Project Reunion.
The idea here is to unify access to the existing Win32 and UWP APIs and decouple them from the operating system, using tools like the .NET package manager NuGet.
