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
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.
