Over the past few years, Microsoft’s mobile business has collapsed to the point of being all but dead. But the firm continues working on Windows 10 Mobile, despite a general dearth of devices that run it. Continuum, a feature that allows Windows 10 devices to connect to external displays and keyboards, essentially functioning like a PC, is still said to be key to any potential uptake of the operating system, but there’s been a major catch — Continuum hardware can’t run Win32 applications and is limited to UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps. According to Mary J. Foley, that could change by the fall of 2017 with the Redstone 3 update for Windows 10. The discovery was kicked off by this Tweet, from WalkingCat, who found evidence that Microsoft might be working on a hybrid x86-64-on-ARM implementation (Foley confirms that the technology’s codename is Cobalt). Read More x86 PC emulation might be good for users who need to use Windows x86 PC software like Adobe Photoshop, or a video editor on their phone where no Windows Store app exist for the task they need to do.
