One of my favourite things in Windows 8 is the ability to Snap  an app and hence have the ability to use 2 apps at the same time

Snap an app: Use two apps at the same time

“Keep an eye on your music playlist while you work on a report. Compare your favorite team's schedule with your own calendar. You can get more done when you snap a second app to the left or right side of your screen. Apps do all the same things when they're snapped as they do when full sized, but they'll make smart adjustments to fit the smaller size. Experiment with different layouts to find out what works best for you.”
