    Re Paul's comment that UWP remains the only way to develop apps across all Windows 10 device types, how many apps are there with comparable %s of all HoloLens, Xbox and PC users? That is, if a particular app were used by 5% of HoloLens users, would it be used by even 1% of Xbox or PC users? How many IoT apps are used any other type of device? How many apps with thousands of PC users at least are used on any IoT devices? Simply, how much actual market is there for one app running on all types of devices?

      The One Windows thing was well-intentioned but ... yeah. A waste of time, as it turns out.

        In reply to paul-thurrott:

        . . . well-intentioned . . .

        We'll have to disagree about that. I figure it was a desperate ploy by MSFT to get any developers it could to make something, anything which Windows phones could run.

        MSFT employs lots of smart people, smart enough to know there'd never be more than a few dozen apps it'd ever make sense to try running across all device types which run Windows.
