    That is not flexible enough for power users. They are going to want to run 2 apps with a 50/50 screen split, or even 3 apps with a 33/33/34 screen split. If you don't add that capability, many users will avoid Windows 8 like they avoided Vista. The desktop legacy mode will allow flexible multitasking, but many of the new apps will only support Metro mode.

    Hello Jsudduth, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Just to note that his is only with Metro apps. Normal programs will behave and can be used just as they always have been.

    note that there are 2 options for changing priority of the metro apps (which app is the bigger pane and which app is the smaller pane):

    1) you can drag the bar to just past the halfway mark of the screen

    OR

    2) you can double-click on the bar that divides the 2 apps.
