Native application that are now modern apps

As I mentioned, Internet Explorer is being replaced with Microsoft Edge in Windows 10. However, it's not the only native app being replaced by a modern app in Windows 10. The good old Search tool is being replaced by Cortana, and Calculator is being replaced with a modern app of the same name (Figure A).

 

 

The new Calc UI looks totally fugly.

Well I think Microsoft want to slowly but surely move all apps to modern apps. But they will have WIN32 apps in the store when Windows 10 is released.  Photoshop modern will be coming out with Windows 10,

Although I like the look of the old calculator better, I guess that there are things that we have to get use to with progress.

I think the question should be: "Should Microsoft to ditch the modern ap and revert to the former format?"  I don't know of anyone who likes the modern ap on a desktop PC and refuse like it on laptops.  It's okay for phones and tablets but that's about it!

The key to app is that it does what you need to get the job done. I've seen fine integration between Win32 apps and modern apps. I call the client server. The pc the server  and the mobile device the client.  A good example is a payroll app with clients using the mobile devices as timeclocks and PC's as the payroll administration.
