OSNews, Generic OSes Ever since iPhoneOS (now iOS) has been released, there's an old fight going on about how multitasking should work on personal computers, and more specially what should happen to applications which are put in the background. Some advocate that they should be dipped in virtual liquid nitrogen and stop doing anything, like on iOS, which others advocate that they should continue to run in the background, like on desktop OSs. What about putting a little more flexibility in there?

Actually multitasking cause a drop in productivity


You cannot state it as a simple, all-covering fact when it's not such. For example I personally can concentrate better if I am listening to music at the same time, which obviously falls into multitasking - category.
