Manual window management is awful. Windows 8 ditched windows in favor of fullscreen apps. Traditional desktop window paradigms are powerful but obsolete.

Windows 9 unifies previous contrasting paradigms, taking design cues from all platforms and recent innovations.

Just an unofficial design concept, but damn, this is sexy. This is exactly what Windows needs - a combination of the old and new, leading to something seemingly far more usable than the monstrosity that is Metro in Windows 8.

Android is closer to that than Windows

Sooner or later, Google will have to implement window management in Android, as the other OEMS (and Samsung) are adding it by themselves to their launchers.

They should have done this ages ago, as Android is more than ready to be used as a desktop OS, but they risk cannibalizing the Chromebook market so it seems they are pushing it back as much as they can.
