Windows 8's Advanced Task Manager Revealed

Windows 8 will have an new kind of task manager, called Advanced Task Manager. According to information obtained by WinRumors, it appears to be a combination of Microsoft's Task Manager and the Resource Monitor.

There's also appears to be considerations made for touch interfaces, as there's a touch-friendly way to kill tasks – perhaps for tablet implementations of Windows 8.

    Hopefully this will at least compete with Process Explorer...

    Yes, Process Explorer is what I call advanced in comparison to Task Manger. This seems just big fluffy icons and graphs. :)

    The should have at least a toggle for "normal PC" or "tablet/touch PC", so that for us normal users we don't have to put up with the HUGE icons taking up all that screen space.
