Thumbs down No multitasking? - No, no never!

Well, looking at all the current mobile OS's,
looks like i will stay with good old WM6.x for a long time.

- I want to listen to music and do something else - 1GH CPU for 1 single task? *gggg*

- I give a **** on multitouch - It's just a hype and makes handling worse...
I want to use my device with one hand!
Scrolling through a list with 20 pages? I praise the scrollbar!!

- I need simple and just working tethering

- I want to take and sync notes

- Capacitive screen? Forget it!
Come on, i've tried it an its a lot more inaccurate, then any resistive screen i know.
Same hype as multitouch...

- etc,etc,etc

I'm really wondering where the development goes - more and more eyecandy...
just my 2cents

i think you're wrong about most of what you typed. WM does have multitasking just not the way you're used to...hell if you check some of my other posts...you'll see it. scroll bars are useless with kinetic scrolling. Capacitive screens allow for more accurate sure presses. You gotta get past the simple and embrace something new. It might be something better but you won't know unless you try...but by all means stick it out with 6.5.3 its awesome in its own right. You just shouldn't bash till you see a finished copy..I could be wrong

Check this article. Straight from the designer. We really have to wait for MIX to see for sure, but it all depends on the implementation.

Multitouch doesn't impress me either.
I use real paper and paint for fingerpainting.

Don't panic and stay calm!

From this you can see, that it's based on WinCE 7.0. So it's multi-task-able.

If there would not be "multi-taks" by default, i bet xda-gurus will bring a path to make it available
Another thing, that MS is a customer-oriented company. They make things that ppl buy, if ppl don't buy, they improve it
If they get feature request like "multi-tasking", they will implement it

maybe, but thats my opinion & experience - i type with my nail (impossible on cs) and now please tell me which cs device is more accurate?
All implementations of kinetic "eye candy" scrolling i know, are bad in some way. They are inaccurate, laggy or both There is no indication where in the list i am located -> See all the guys rubbing their fingers 2 or 3 times on the screen, just to understand "oh i'm at the end"?

Ok, it will have some kind of multitasking - but i will depend on the folks of xda to make mortscript or autohotkey to work

Maybe you should rethink about your position: Not every new thing is good for the customer...
For example: Compact disc, DVB-x (T,S,C), flat screens, audio downloads with DRM ...

The core operating system is a modern multitasking operating system. If you play music for example, the music will play back as you navigate around the experience...if you're using email, we have great support for push email and that happens in the background.
For third party applications—we'll get into a lot more detail on this in MIX—but we have a few ways we're going to make sure that third parties can bring their value to the user even when the app is not running. Live tiles are an example. Data feeds in the hubs are another example for some apps.

What i think about is a bit more complicated. The OS Does support Multitasking i guess but we will not need to keep the apps running in the background. if the application needs to wait for something to work, it will notify the OS what to look for and once it happens the OS will start the required app.

Makes sense doesn't it? this will give more than just multi tasking capability to the devices without the need of wasting RAM for background processes or apps that wait for something to happen.

It will be some "iPhone style" of multitasking, but it's crappy in my opinion - http://pockethacks.com/what-about-mu...hone-7-series/
