Big deal, it's a worthless feature that most people would never use on a tiny screen. Even 10 inches are tiny screens. I have it on my Samsung devices and never use it. Samsung is the one who first came out with it on Android.

I still think stock is best but it's always good for OEM's to test the waters first and have Google adopt the best features later.
G Flex already got this feature called Dual Window and this on Android 4.2.2 ^^
abc, 23 May 2016No. Apple is still heading in wrong direction.
I would not be too sure of that.
iOS is maturing. ARM CPUs are getting better and better, and if you design ARMs that run of laptop batteries or even of the powerplug, you could boost the performance more.
I think Apple is jsut looking for the perfect breaking point.
They have a lot of pro and prosumer users, that edits video, edit images and produce music on their devices.
But it wont be long, before most video editing could be done on a ARM powered iOS device, and most image editing already can be.
When they reach the point, when most of their Pro and Prosumer users would be fine with iOS, I think they will drop OS X. Or perhaps sell OS X off. It's not worth keeping development up, for a very small amount of users.
Probably most Mac buyers today, only use them for everyday tasks, that could already be done as well on a device running iOS, in the same formfactor as their Mac.
Big Daddy, 23 May 2016No it is inspired from a thing called desktop.Nope. You didn't get it. Some android features that we see nowadays become part of the stock experience while third parties(samsung,etc) introduced them first, and in some cases were criticized by droid purists but now are praises by them.
I foresee all OS will be singular one day. But for now, it's still a long long way road to get there. What's nice is knowing that we're all (Apple, Google, MS) are heading in the right direction.
woosh, 22 May 2016does this still smell like a feature "inspired" from samsung?No it is inspired from a thing called desktop.

All Google said was that Android N's Seamless update won't make it to existing devices as it requires dual partition system to work. and making one through update may render the device useless thus risking the owner's valuable data and loss of device altogether.

I bought a s7 edge few days ago. As per the google's recent overview, existing device can't get the update of Android N, new device running Android N only can get the update. So my s7 edge won't get the update, right??
