Feasibility of making a windows widget to run android apps

chdchan
Seems microsoft is still hostile towards Android compatibility. We need to wait for the third parties to make android apps runnable on screen-side widget within Windows platform. Bluestacks is still far too a dummy infant.

    What I mean is, why go to the trouble to write a layer to sit on top of Windows
    just to run an Android app? It seems to me it would be better to just use the
    Windows developer kits and write native applications.
    It also would depend on what type of apps you had in mind. However, since
    you specified Android, I'm assuming you mean mobile apps. With that in
    mind, I would look more at the Metro apps SDK. If you were inclined to
    write something sort of "cross-platform", I suppose you could use the Java
    SDKs?
