Let me second that. I hope Øystein will re-introduce the choice of integrated vs. multiple. I know it is work in progress, and that Øystein is working on it, but on Linux the new layout is just plain terrible. And, if it cannot be improved, or even if it makes us "second rate citizens" that is not acceptable. The development version is practically broken on Linux. I am not complaining - that is what a development version is for, but I think fixing it should be the first priority now, before adding any MS stuff.

The multiple version was there. it was working, and some people like it. (Worse, one who likes it is the principal developer of GNUbg).
I hope to see it back soon as a choice to the user.

Remember that the main platform for gnubg is the GNU platform, e.g.,
GNU/Linux or GNU/Hurd.

We should *NOT* introduce all the bad design of Windows and Windows
programs into gnubg.

Of course, but I don't think that is the case here. One must certainly
find a balance between usefulness and ease-of-use, and I don't see using
that baalnce being threatened here. Having a Player Record, or the data
within, is both useful and convenient. It isn't something that is
particular to Windows. Consider the unified GUI. I think it is a LOT
better, and the compliments in GOL and e-mail have been numerous. I'd be
glad to recopy them here for you. I haven't seen one single user prefer
the older multiple windows á la UNIX.

I like the old layout better, but as it seems that I'm outnumbered I
didn't bother to complain :-)
