If I came across as being mean then I apologize. But I just don't care for the excuses I've heard. This is reminiscent of why Internet Explorer doesn't have tabbed browsing to this day - because Microsoft doesn't think the public wants it or needs it. I sort of get the same feeling here. We don't need it and therefore we won't get it.

Usually when software reaches a major release milestone (IE 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0) there are drastic changes between these versions and the code in the 3.0 codebase doesn't even resemble the 1.0 codebase. This is why I don't really buy the excuse that "we'll have to rewrite the entire application". The codebase has already been drastically changed and the inclusion of tabs is just another evolution in the codebase that will differentiate it from the 3.x codebase.
