Windows So, Mobile World Congress is going on over in the beautiful city of Barcelona, and there, Steve Ballmer held a little speech about Windows Phone 7's past, present, and future. Especially the future interests us, as a lot's been planned for this year: copy/paste, hardware-accelerated mobile Internet Explorer 9, and, yes, multitasking!

This isn't multitasking. These are frozen recently used apps, with some services allowed to run in the background. It may be a good idea on the phone, but it is not what a computer scientist would call multitasking (check the wiki page)


So they are just using Windows 7 code!?! Re-use old crap code! Clever Basterds!

no, seriously, i actually read that as "Windows 7 would receive multitasking" ..as in decent multitasking!
