PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Samsung's recent Android 4.1.2 upgrade for the Galaxy Note 10.1 adds power and flexibility to the company's unique offering of Android multiwindowing features. With this update, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can run up to 16 multiwindow-enabled Android apps at once, Windows/Mac-like, on a single screen. Apps endowed with Samsung's multiwindow technology are usable in three viewing modes: full screen, dual view, and cascade view." There are already some complaining this represents a dangerous fork of Android. I thinks it's a step in the right direction.

This is why OEMs are dying. They want to stand out and make money, this leads to the craptacular amount of crapware on pcs, plus the oem's own "support software" to make it easier to order more ink or a completely new computer when the current one is too overloaded with crap the crapware installs.

This is why Microsoft is moving into hardware.

With linux, they could differentiate with things like kde plasmoids, themes, and ease of use ( zero config for your specific hardware), without greatly affecting its speed or functionality.

But of course MS office would be out of the question.
