In stock multi windows we can have only 2 apps opened and visible at the same time.
If you are rooted and on the last KK ROM it's possible to have 3 or 4 apps opened at the same time on the same screen, read further...

Make a backup, just in case.

Open your /system/etc/permissions folder,
add .bak at the end of com.sec.feature.multiwindow.xml,
download the attached zip (DO NOT FLASH IT),
extract it,
copy the files to your /system/etc/permissions folder,
set their perms to rw, r, r or 644,
reboot.
Open any app from the flash bar (the multi windows app launcher on the side) and open a second one.
Now open a third one and drag it to any side, it will take one quarter of the screen. Open a fourth app, same story, now you have 4 apps opened on the same screen.
Every app is fully resizable, both in lenght and in width...
I'm sorry, I can't take any screenshot from my phone, but if you want to see how it looks do a google images search with "quad view multi window".
Enjoy and stay tuned, there's probably more to come!!!

Can I have your permission to share this in the Note 2 community as well, it has been tested on the Note and works fine.

Yep, it fits fine. Try it by yourself...
By the way, I'm currently working on doing the same for 4.2.2 and it already works more or less. It's not exactly the same than in 4.4.2 cuz it's more like the 5 layouts from the note 2, but the screen splits in 2, 3 and 4 which is the desired effect. A bit more testing and improving and I'll put it on a new thread...
