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?

...although suffering from a heavy use of "which" (it is very often interchangeable with "that" so a little variety will definitely help your style).

One of your most clear writings though. I enjoyed it even though I hate touch-tech and, most of all, tablets.

Cleaned up a bit, how is it now ? ;)

One of your most clear writings though.

The clearer it is in my mind, the clearer it is on paper... Foreign languages are unforgiving.

I enjoyed it even though I hate touch-tech and, most of all, tablets.

The tablet is only here as a "how I came up with this" introduction. As you probably know if you've read last months' posts, I'm not fond of current touchscreens and tablets either, though I don't dislike each for the same reasons.

Tablets manage to get around the defects of touch interfaces a bit as they can make controls bigger, but the current implementation is in my opinion not what it should have been.
