Don't forget, there are occasions where you want to be able to see two or more 
subforms (mdi child forms) at the same time side-by-side within the mdi 
parent.  If you were to simply do this w/ excel style tabs that showed 
subForm1 full size, or subForm2 full size, you wouldn't get the benefit from 
being able to position your windows for multi viewing purposes.  

I guess one example of such an app would be stock trading, you'd want to be 
able to watch stocks in one window while working in another.

Maybe not the best example but works anyway.
