Developers will be able to port a single code base to desktops, phones, XBox, and even HoloLens. Microsoft claims that even IOS and Android developers can port their projects to Windows based machines as well as Windows Phones.

If all goes well for Microsoft, this could be a winning mobile strategy for them.
