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?

Whatever we thing, they will one day be as powerful than our today's PC. And one other day they will surpass them.


You do realize that PCs will also continue to grow more powerful, and without the size and power constraints of mobile devices, they will continue to be more powerful than the equivalent mobile device. Will they pass today's PCs? Sure, will they pass the PCs of the future? I doubt it.

The laws of physics almost guarantee it.
