Maybe not so much.  Most of those stacks aren't open all the time, some 
seldom used; I had them open just for the screen shot.

Like you, I use a lot of short cuts in the Message Box, but I've 
replaced mine with the Console window shown there to take up less space 
because it's modeless rather than a palette, so I can bring windows up 
in front of it without having it cover anything.

Most of the time I have only the dark slender palette at the left open. 
  With that I can show/hide other palettes, even IDE tools, with a 
single click, so the work space is very tidy - it even works well on my 
1366x768 laptop.

But yes, choice is good.

Ideally the IDE would evolve into more of a tool rack, where we could 
hang any drop-in replacements we like easily. Much of that can be done 
now, but it's trickier in some cases than I'd prefer.
