Windows Since I'm a little under the weather at the moment, posting is a bit slow on OSNews (yes, a story about Notion Ink's Adam is upcoming!). I'm kind of picking the simple and easy-to-write items for now, and this is most certainly one of them. As some of you might know, Microsoft unveiled Windows Phone 7 Series yesterday, a complete reboot of its mobile operating system. While little is known about its internals, it's most likely based on Windows Embedded CE 6.0.

"So recent experiences with webOS phones getting really slow when a few apps are open is "not worth mentioning due to irrelevance"?"

The WebOS problem you use as an example is, well, a WebOS problem. It's a fairly new operating system and its multi tasking implementation is not as good. WinCE 6.0 has been tried and tested under a staggering amount of different circumstances and mission critical environments. WinCE's multi tasking is incredibly efficient and has been fine tuned over many years. WebOS is still, to an extent, in it's infancy and does not have it's roots any deeper than the hand held market.

So just to wrap things up, WebOS's slow downs, due to multiple applications running at the same time, effect (drum roll).... WebOS. ;)
