This is a good point to discuss and I have posted to
discuss at documentfoundation.org also.
I prefer separate windows because I can compare and proof
documents/sheets side by side and mouse focus in linux makes scrolling
without changing window focus possible. I would be disappointed if LO
went to tabs.

May be both options could be supported. The menu "File>Open" could be"
File>Open AS" tab or window. A bit like FF gives you the option.
