Looks very nice. Couldn't tell if the developer is using Qt for his cross-platform development or
something else. Looks nice from the screenshots though.

This is extremely weird. Why didn't the developer use standard MDI and modeless dialogs instead of
building a complex pager system? It's like using emacs for your complete desktop system.

To the devs, why is MDI so bad again? Was it the previous KMDI framework or is there something
fundementally broken with the interface?
