“Multiple windows? What a radical concept

Three decades after windows were introduced to desktop computers, they’re finally re-appearing on our mobile devices. Samsung has done an excellent job of providing a multi-window system on its Note product line. It is much more flexible and powerful than Microsoft’s klunky screen-splitting capability in Windows 8. (See: Windows 8: The disastrous result of Microsoft’s gutless equivocation.) You can easily put just about any application in half the screen, with a second application in the other half. You can change the amount of real estate for each application simply by moving a slider, or switch the applications around by dragging them. Screen rotation still works flawlessly. I found it easy to have a video or webpage in one window while I took notes in the other.”
