Windows I have a Surface RT tablet. I bought it because I'm a Windows Phone user, and despite its major flaws, I still hate WP much less than I hate its competitors. As such, it made sense to me that I would like the Surface RT as well - I mean, my favourite UI on a tablet? Count me in! It should come as no surprise by now that Windows RT was a major disappointment, so now that the Windows 8.1 preview is here, did Microsoft address any of the major problems?

a computer that can't keep the state of multitasked applications isn't a multitasking computer for the user in question.

all these weak mobile devices have the same sort of problem, and I think it will go away with more memory capacity, but it is pretty sad until then.


Windows 8, iOS and Android support app/fragment state preservation and restoration. The onus in often on the individual developers to do some leg work to make it happen.
