reintroduce MDI support in Visual Studio IDE
MDI was a good idea to view multiple windows in VS IDE side by side.
VS2010 removed the support of MDI and it is no longer possible to look multiple windows side by side except if you undock the window and arrange the windows manually.
It would be much user friendly if MDI support could be enabled like in VS2003-2008
Having MDI in VS2008 was the reason for me to use it as the editor for all my embedded projects too. Now I just can use this Eclipse-Junk. The annoyance level of a forced window layout is just the same. Who made tis stupid decision to remove MDI? Why does everyone think to have to copy this bad Eclipse behaviour???

your proposed solution is not really MDI but it meets my requirement to have two - or more - windows side by side to see both content at the same time without undocking the windows.
thank you for this tip

In VS 2010, right-click a tab and select "New Vertical Tab Group" to show multiple tabs side-by-side (select "New Horizontal Tab Group" to show them stacked). To merge the tabs back, right-click and select "Move to Previous/Next Tab Group".
