Gostei daquilo que vi. O snapview mais livre pareceu-me uma excelente adição. Não é bem 50/50, podes posicionar a divisão da janela onde bem quiseres e melhor podes ter mais que duas apps em simultâneo no ecrã.

Parece-me que as apps a partir de agora se vão adaptar ao tamanho da janela e caso o espaço seja muito pequeno então usar a vista de snap (mais minimalista) que conhecemos hoje.
Na minha opinião é o primeiro passo para que as apps do Windows Phone 8 sejam integradas na Windows Store. :)

Em relação ao IE11 finalmente foi incluído a sincronização dos separadores, o que é um bom presságio para ver a versão final. :)

Estava à espera de mais avanços no Desktop, mas como todos sabemos essas adições são normalmente deixadas para mais tarde.


Visual Features:

(1) Xtra Large & Small Tile Option (The Xtra Large Tile option for the desktop "app" is a hilarious jab at those who cant let go, It's virtually saying hey an enhanced version of "windows 7" is one click away -__-)

(2) One Swipe from the bottom bezel to show all your apps.

(3) You may select multiple tiles & move them all at once

(4) Contextual search fields within certain menus and settings

(5) Simply swipe from the bottom bezel and hit customize to rename groups.

(6) New Calculator App, Alarm App, Sound Recorder App Etc.

(7) Snapped View with added dimensions (50/50, 80/20), Maybe even dependent on your screens resolution you may be able to snap 4 apps at a time.


Isto é que é verdadeiro multitasking:

Ainda é muito cedo, demasiado cedo até, mas agrada-me o facto de estarem a melhorar o Metro. Algumas das novas opções como o tamanho das Tiles já devia vir no Windows 8.

Espero ver estas "novidades" no Windows 8 através de um update, ou através de alguma ferramenta de terceiros (sim OblyTile, estou a falar para ti :D).

Verdadeiro Multitasking? Era sarcasmo espero.

mas realmente uma feature tao antiga como o TILE WINDOWS VERTICALLY agora parece que descobriram a pólvora no Metro..
Se for a pagar deixo-me pelo 8.

Parece mesmo que "descobriram a pólvora no Metro", implementar multi-tasking como nos anos 80...

Mas por outro, quantos OS touch-friendly é que oferecem multi-tasking paralelo como isto? Pois...

Digo isto na posição de um utilizador do Windows 8 que não usa mais o Metro, principalmente no desktop, pela limitação do snap. Conseguir manter o desktop visível e utilizável ao mesmo tempo que outra app Metro não modo tile é o suficiente para tornar tudo mais integrado e utilizável.

Mas realmente, vou ter que concordar que este tipo de coisas já devia vir no 8 de origem, isto de lançaram features às mijinhas é sinal que as coisas foram apressadas para cumprir prazos. Só assim se justifica o estado das aplicações base da Microsoft na altura do lançamento, pouco ou nada funcionais.

Mas acabou de sair o W8 e já estão a preparar o Blue?
O win7 saiu em 2009 o 8 em 2012 por isso o Blue só deve sair lá para 2015-16 certo?
É que aos preços que está o Windows a fazer upgrade todos os anos tamos tramados :(

Windows Vista -> Windows 6.0
Windows 7 -> Windows 6.1
Windows 8 -> Windows 6.2
Windows Blue -> Windows 6.3
Portanto, tecnicamente é um sistema operativo novo, mas que vai ser um update ao Windows 8.
Em princípio vai ser grátis, mas não há certezas (pode custar 20 ou 30€, por exemplo).
