Yeah, the Metro side isn't about multitasking. I don't mean it can't multitask, I mean you can't. One window open per screen.
WHAT?! Windows 8 is sounding worse with each and every post.....
Again, I haven't used it so my info could be off, but I believe Metro apps are made to run full screen exclusively. I guess it's not entirely the end of the world as the only things I tend to run Windowed are Winamp and Explorer - wait, no, sometimes I have IE in a window on one screen with a video playing above it and Excel and/or PowerPoint open on the other monitor - 3 windows for 2 monitors. Most of the time it's one window per monitor, but I like the luxury of more.
But that's just the Metro side, and that's part of the reason why I think Metro apps won't catch on. I do not need a giant calculator.
