Windows Yes, the day is finally drawing closer: the day Windows XP died. October 22, 2010 will be the final and definitive day for the venerable operating system, since OEMs will no longer be able to pre-load it on netbooks after that day. I might not make myself popular around here with this, but thank god, it's about time that pile of junk is taken behind the shed.

It's not the same concept at all.

Each tab in a browser is its own isolated experience. There's no real reason you'd ever need to see two webpages at the same time. A file manager is just the opposite. Each window of your file manager is mostly useless on its own. You need a few of them on the screen together before any of them are useful for managing files. Their contents relate to eachother. I personally do not want to trade dragging and dropping files for tabs.
