GeneralMDI Is No More? Pin

So I'm working on a contract converting an old XBase app to WPF. The UI was to be a MDI app. Spent 2 days researching this then found out that MDI is not supported in WPF.

I mean. really??

So I started Googling. Some of the posts I saw talked about how MDI is dead, other say no.

This started me thinking about how much influence Microsoft has. One subtle change like that cause a ripple effect in development arenas.

I personally like options, because my users always want something different. No two UI's are the same. But now, it seems, because of a decision by MS, they will ALL be somewhat the same.

Does this sort of thing bother you, or do you just go with the flow?
If it's not broken, fix it until it is
