Today we can see a lot of useful programs that have deal with text, graphics, numerical data and so on. For example look at another CAS system. There are a useful tools for graphics edit, for variables edit. MS Word is simple and powerful text editor with ribbon interface. OriginPro is power tool for graphics. Any modern internet browser has a tab interface. Why not?

Actually, I would like to use Mathematica instead of MS Word for write scientific manuscripts. But science journals require a special text formatting.  Such formatting is laborious in FrontEnd.
