Last time I used a Nokia tablet, it had a "single-app-at-a-time" UI,
much like the iPhone. Or Sugar.

I do think that the shell can restrict the number of open apps, and
even actively close bg apps if their document state is saved. Between
such shell improvements and the OOM scores Tomeu proposes, the user
experience can be much better.
