... interesting application several times over the years and it has made visible progress.

My problem with this is that I get not familiar with that idiom on Windows. While I use tiling window managers on Linux for years all the time (and I don't want to use something else anymore) I can't really accept tiling on Windows very well. It seems that the GUI applications are a bit different on Windows, especially more complex in GUI (docking bars, floating bars, tabbed panes ...), which makes some of them don't like to be tiled.
