Dear Syed

I suppose I have not enough experiance in multi-window
use of Stata.  In that situation, one may be easily 
confused which window uses which dataset without an adequate 
title. Next generation Stata might handle dataset in such a
way (, with a dataset navigation window(?)). But I will stop
here, because I have nothing to talk about future.
 I only wanted to express my favorite to slim and clever
present Stata.

Thank you,

Toyoto
