An earlier thread about MDI existence made me wonder, for an application that requires the following characteristics:
- client side application (not run in the browser)
- has several (more than let's say 50) windows or similar
- windows are typically very different from each other in layout and functionality
- requires integration with other locally installed applications on client
- for the user, it's often beneficial to see selected information from another window while working on another

Which kind of UI style would you prefer?
