Re: window-in-window MDI

I think the wrong question is being asked. It shoudl be, "Why can the app
force the mode?" I dont see a reason the app should be able to
specify what mode the app will be in. Solution. Remove that ability. Then
users allways get their choice. Then there will not be much reason to not
support wiwMDI
