So Microsoft have decided to take the step of discontinuing support for the UWP (Universal Windows Platform) versions of Microsoft Office, instead deciding to focus only on the traditional Win32 versions (which have also been available alongside UWP versions) as well as Android and iOS versions.

Why? Well, with the death of Windows Phone, UWP has become a little pointless, there's no need to be universal when you're only on PC and nowhere else.

And so with Microsoft seeing that UWP is now a lost cause, does this spell the end of UWP? Why would other developers invest in apps for the Windows Store when Microsoft themselves are going back to good old Win32?
