Windows Paul Thurrot: "Tipped off by a reader, I checked my System log in Event Viewer today and what did I find but a stack of pending updates for all of the core apps in Windows 8. I'm not 100 percent sure this is what I think it is. But if we're right, it looks like 18 of the core apps in Windows 8 are about to get updated. Or, almost all of them." Foley confirms it. By far Windows 8's weakest link, so I'm hoping this is true. Especially the Mail application is dreadful.

nope, windows phone 8 always reloads the apps from scratch for me, it doesn't allow them to stay on the background like android or modern ios.
Pretty annoying with apps such as gchat on 3G, has to load the contact list all the time. Happens with all applications, so at this point I think it's just the OS that doesn't support proper multitasking
