I've never gotten into tabbed terminals. I use gnome-terminals the same
way I used xterms: dozens open at once. I use vim (gvim in X) and find
the same thing. I find using one window with a bunch of buffers really
difficult to use, and use dozens of gvim windows instead. I suppose I
like to be able to see a lot of my terminals and open files at once
which you can't do with buffers and tabs.

I find however that tabs in a web browser are indispensable. I have no
idea how IE users deal with having so many browser windows.
