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.

Yes, actually, they do support re-sizing while running. How else would auto-rotate work with every app? ;)

Android just doesn't expose the feature properly for use when not rotating the screen.

The OP probably referred to that lo/mid/high dpi settings so apps can adjust layout according to form factor. Still there is no technical reason or limitation to not allow switching between the modes on the fly. Hes wrong assuming Android apps would not support it. Technical they do already, all of them, out of the box.
