It’s no secret that Microsoft already has a UWP “converter” tool which enables developers to turn desktop apps into Windows Store applications. A new post out by the Spanish language blog Windows Phone Apps, though, has revealed another (more secretive) UWP project named “Project Europe.”

Seen above, the project was teased on a slide to the audience at a Build Tour event in Barcelona Spain. As reported by the Windows Phone Apps blog, participants at the event were also involved in the tease and were challenged to guess what “Project Europe” meant.  The given options included “expansion plans for Azure in data centers” or “secret project UWP .” While it was revealed that the second choice was the right answer, no further details on the project were revealed at the event. The blog, though, has speculated that the project might be related to Project Islandwood or Project Centennial.

The details on this project may be foggy, but we still would like to know your thoughts on what this latest project could mean for the future of Windows 10. Sound off and give us your thoughts by dropping us a comment below!
