I love Windows Phone and the new Mango update nut can you really call its new multitasking feature "multitasking"? It is more of a quick app switch function.
For example I was in the middle of a game of Angry Birds and then I hit home. I then pulled up the "multitasking" cards and switched back to Angry Birds, but it was like I had just reopened the app.
What do you all think?

Yes, right now you only get real multitasking in Microsoft products; not until apps are update will they get multitasking.
And they will not get updated until they can be put on the Marketplace. So no real multitasking until it is officially released.

Actually, the multitasking comes in the form of background services, I think. The fast app switching is only the thing that seems to be getting the most attention because it's what most people think of.
As I understand it, if an app is allowed to run bg services, it'll update while it's "dehydrated" in the app switching view. For example, if a Twitter app has bg services and you have it in the switcher, it'll update itself and it'll show the new content when you switch back to it.
