    No matter how powerfull they make smartphones there are things you will always be able to do on a computer that cannot be done on a smartphone. As someone who uses computers, tablets, and smartphones every day that is just the nature of the beast.

    Although cumbersome, I tried it on a Galaxy tab 3 I had; did it one or twice but it wasn't worth the effort and just down right gave up.

    No. The screen isn't really big enough to make it useful. It's worth noting that the iPhone won't be doing it either. Although iOS 9 will support split screen, it will only support it on the iPad Air 2.

    As far as the original topic...

    iOS and OSX may have a few new features similar to Windows 8.x, but they are still two separate and very distinct OSes. That alone makes it very difficult for me to consider them "similar" to Windows 8.x.

    Also, things always look more polished in a product demo than they are in the real world. We have seen and used Windows 8.x (both good and bad aspects) in the real world, but iOS 9 has not been touched by consumers yet. We'll have to see how it plays out, but IMHO iOS 9 isn't very exciting and Apple is going to have to do a lot more than add split screen to make iOS compete with Windows 8.x or 10 on a productivity level.

    I think that we maybe getting to the point of running out of technological innovations, I can only digest so much information.

    Although cumbersome, I tried it on a Galaxy tab 3 I had; did it one or twice but it wasn't worth the effort and just down right gave up.
    Looking back at this it amazes me why I spend my money on a tablet which can do this feature not so well, yet my venue 8 pro just cake walk it.
