The Microsoft drew a lot of attention during
the official launch of Windows 10 to confirm the development of tools called
internally Astoria Project and Islandwood, the first focused on the size of
Android applications in universal apps Windows 10 while the second would focus
on developers of iOS. Sometime later, we saw the arrival of a subsystem within
Windows 10 Mobile itself that allowed the installation of Android applications
without any conversion, thus demonstrating that those responsible for them
would have virtually no job to get them to the Windows Store if desired. With
this, however, began to emerge performance problems serious on the platform,
indicating that green little robot was pulling all available resources, causing
the operating system itself stay “heavy” too stocky even on the
Windows Bridge for Android

Due to numerous problems, from build 10549
Windows 10 Mobile that we no longer have a subsystem Android inserted into the
platform, something that began to promote various rumors about the project
closure for a greater focus on apps migration from iOS (Islandwood) Web (Westminster)
and Win32 (Centennial). As nothing was talked about it from Microsoft itself,
there is no way to know the company’s plans for the future, but a new
“track” given by the company may mark the end of the
much-talked-Astoria Project.

As can be seen by accessing the site created
by Microsoft for the developers Windows Bridge for Android, the address was
apparently discontinued by the company, showing the name “error 404”
page not found. This indicates that the company really dropped out at least for
now, there is no reason to keep the page being accessed if the tool itself will
not be used. Unfortunately, however, was not revealed why the address is down,
we wait requiring the company to release an official statement on the subject
to know what really happened.
