I don't know how many times I have started VLC player on one screen to start playing a full screen game and have the video stop but the sound continue.


How many times using Youtube while playing a game I have to alt tab out of the game to change the song and then wait as the game loaded back into memory.

The windows desktop can only focus on one app at a time and this sucks.


Every single Windows Metro app running maintains focus so;

If I put on Hyper for Youtube and play Civilization 5 for Windows 8, the above problem does not exist, I can move the mouse over to Hyper for youtube while my game continues to play.

Only Windows 8... and Linux distro
