I had a bb storm. Yea I know. But I left bb after my contract ended and have been with windows phone since. I know its a new bb experience but I'm not willing to go back to it. I love my 920 and rt and w8 desktop. To me windows is more of the experience I want. Albeit there still are some things I wish it had or could do I am happy with the route I have chosen.

Good WP apps use the app pause functionality. If I switch to something else and come back to an app (such as wpcentral) I'm right where I left off. No reload at all. It just paused it which helps battery life significantly.
I'd much rather have WP style "multitasking" then have 8 apps ACTUALLY running at the same time and killing my battery.

I think Paul's argument would be that if you don't want to reload an app, then don't relaunch it from the start screen. Simple as that. Use the app switcher instead, as intended by the OS.
Despite that, I do think MS has completely screwed up app launching/resuming in WP8, because it isn't deterministic. What actually happens when launching/resuming isn't controlled by the OS, but rather by each individual app. Bugs in apps can prevent apps from resuming correctly/quickly, while what happens when relaunching is entirely up to the app. IMHO this just isn't reliable and consistent enough.

Just watched the 10 minute video on CB. I like the OS even more. The way you unlock the screen is sweet! The icons are static, I find boring. I would give it a shot, if it wasn't for the app situation. I feel that's the one thing that will hold both WP and BB back. Who ever gets better 3rd party app support will win the battle for 3rd place.

Agree that they screwed up by not simply doing this right at the os level.

Thanks for clarifying that!
IMHO it could just as well work according to your preferences. I don't really care. Behaviourally it just needs to be consistent, which it currently isn't. I believe this to be the far more serious issue.
Back to BB10?

for instance on my HTC 8x if I'm listening to music(Amazing music) and I'm on twitter(Rowi), and I have to go to the start screen for whatever reason, to go back to my music player or twitter page all i do is hold the back buttom and all 'windows' of app im using pop up, I just slide to Rowi and I'm right back sending a tweet, no reloading.
I used to do the same exact process in Android except a pop up of my app icons will appear instead...
I can send you screen caps if you'd like

Again, why do y'all care? I think one general BB topic would've sufficed. Now it looks as if this forum IS caring.
And as far as my personal opinion, the "flow" looks neat. Hate the homescreen and the lack of apps
