There is an MDI widget in Gnome.
It doesn't work exactly like the MDI in Windows, but it could (that
is, I believe the API is abstract enough that it could be supported
with changing the applications).
There is much disagreement as to whether the Windows-style MDI is
actually a good thing. Many believe it is horrible. The Gnome UI is
an alternate interface that people apparently find more palatable.
