Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

Uhm, you failed utterly and completely at reading comprehension. My god, this must be me some sort of new record.

It's not a matter of reading comprehension when the material in question doesn't actually state its meaning. You only referred to a tweet obliquely, you didn't actually mention what the tweet was about.

I read that bit about the Amiga the same way. You can't expect everyone to click on every link you post. If people did that, anyone who visited Wikipedia would die of exhaustion after spending 5 days at their computers reading every article that branched off the first one.

When one writes as casually as you do (let's face it, your writing is a far cry from any sort of journalistic standard), their readers are bound to misinterpret something every now and then.

I actually find myself agreeing; the title specifically talks about multi-user support and the small excerpt doesn't mention anything to the contrary, so I , too, thought he was talking about multi-user.

Well, I had an Amiga and know it had multitasking and never saw any multiuser aspects of it, and am ashamed of agreeing with an obvious troll, but still in my first reading of the article I also thought you were talking about multiuser in Amiga.

Perhaps it is due to the title which makes you think about multiuser features, so the intro a slgihtly different subject end seeming out of place? I dunno, but it was easy to be mistaken.

The article has both multiuser and multitasking thrown in in the same paragraph. It's all mixed in and very confusing. I followed the first twitter link expecting multiuser related stuff and found a picture of two Metro apps running at the same time. There is no coherency between the article and the title.
