It is the application any child uses first (after games and browsers
that is). You are right, however, it is advanced and makes many people
frustrated. But, it has a lot of clickable icons, that can makes it

Perhaps it's only marketing.

In general those that have tabs for the windows:
wxpython, Pythonwin, Refrigeration Utilities, Matlab, Texniccenter,

In general not those which allow only one file (buffer) in one window
(frame): maple, octave, maxima, gsview, open office.
