The Windows 8 Task Manager – Building Windows 8 – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

Post on the details behind the "reimagined" task manager — http://t.co/J4LZYVgT (lots of pictures and 2 videos)
As we mentioned during the Windows 8 keynote at //build/, every 15 years or so we choose to update Task Manager. Of course that was said in jest as we have incrementally improved the utility in just about every release of Windows. For Windows 8, we took a new look at the tool and thought through some new scenarios and a new way of tuning the tool for “both ends of the spectrum” in terms of end-users and those that need very fine-grained control over what is going on with their PC. Ryan Haveson, the group program manager of our In Control of Your PC team, authored this post. Note: This post is about Task Manager, not about closing Metro style applications
