Is that correct? The idea of Microsoft is to have a lot of wi apps runnning on Arm platform because there is only a few native Arm apps available to this day.
The easy way is this. Microsoft offers x86 real-time conversion to ARM emulators, but this does not apply to all software, such as hardware drivers. This conversion can result in a significant performance loss, and the best way to do this is to recompile a native ARM version.
Currently, many appx in the Microsoft Store offer ARM programs, and some Win32 desktop programs also offer ARM versions, such as 7z, Visual Studio Code, Rufus.
