Gnome "Gnome Shell 2.91.90 was released yesterday getting some fine adjustments according to the release announcement: 'This release just about concludes user interface changes anticipated before GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.' Gnome Shell 2.91.90 brings new automatic workspaces, removed minimize and maximize buttons from window titlebars, a PolicyKit authentication agent and more."

+1 for tabs, but not all applications support tabs.

Another problem might be if you have multiple activities using the same application (for example let's say that in my browser I have 5 tabs for one project and 5 for another). You can solve this using Tab Groups in Firefox 4 or Linux's virtual desktops (not the half-assed implementation Apple calls Spaces).

Also tabs should be provided by the OS in an unified way, not by every app in its own unique way.

Until all this is supported ... I think it's a bit premature to do away with multiple windows.
