Android still doesn’t offer proper multi-window multitasking, but you can get it with a third-party tweak. All you need is root access — you don’t have to install a custom ROM.

This is definitely a good start, but the lack of floating, draggable windows is what kills it for me. Sure split-view is fine on a phone, but on a tablet, having individual windows of apps is far more useful.
Which is also the only thing that keeps on this crappy Samsung firmware. None of the AOSP ROMs have a decent multiwindow framework

To achieve a better multitasking windows environment, there is need of advanced synchronization. On this factor, Windows Phone seems the best.

Is there any way to get a "Close" button on Android? Cause that is what really puts me off it, constantly having to check which apps are running in the background. And I don't mean one of those task manager apps, but a real "close" button which kills the app instantly, with a nice X like God intended.

I actually found an app that does a great job of multitasking. It's called Multitasking. While the creator of the app doesn't, as yet allow you do much customizing, as to which apps should be used for which task, the apps that Multitasking does use are quite adequate for the time being. Check it out.
