It's not real multitasking and it's a cumbersome process to move from an app to an app. All this thing does is freeze the process and continue where it left off when you're back within the app. Real multitasking means the process continues in the background. For example, a Web page continues to download even if you switched app.
The only mobile OS that does multitasking well and easily is Palm's webOS. Nothing beats the card interface and knowing exactly what's running in the background at any time.
With the recently opened apps thing, it could include apps that were shut down and some process will run in the background without the user being able to terminate them easily and quickly like they can on a Palm webOS phone.
