In short, because it is better. It takes some time, but once you get
used to it, and learn the easily discoverable keystrokes (like
Shift-Enter or middle click) you'll find it very easy to navigate. The
features of the spatial windows, like remembering their position on the
screen, and remembering how far down you scrolled are useful, usable and

Once you go spatial, you'll never look back.
