Microsoft has devoted much time to the improvement of Metro applications, devoted primarily to the impact of resources on the system. In Windows 8, Windows through the App Store, we purchase and download different applications quickly and easily, then we could just as easily suspend without excessive consumption of memory. All applications in fact, use a multitasking API, allowing users to run many applications simultaneously, which can be quickly suspended.
Microsoft has also developed a method to reclaim memory from a Metro suspended. If the system OS or other applications have a request for memory, Windows 8 will just write it all in one application style disk to memory.
The process is similar to the technique of hibernation, used to suspend Windows and to prevent the consumption of energy, giving then a faster startup of the system. Applications Desktop will use the traditional RAM in the background, leading to a paged memory management that stores data on disk and then recover it when the physical RAM is fully used.
Microsoft finally declares that the timing of “resume” for applications will vary depending on the speed of the hard disk and the size thereof. The company, however, is working to improve even more the way in which data is written and read, so as to make it even faster.“We expect that many applications will be able to resume work in less than a second,” said Bill Karagounis of Microsoft.
