Re: window-in-window MDI


window in window is design flaw. Ms brought this because it couldnt do 
what apple does, because the app menus are atteched to windows, and on 
mac are to the screen. So Mac is allways window in window. Thinking of 
the screen as a window. NeXT also does not have this bug.

I wish menu support could be added to the menupanel.....
