The typical usage where I have more than one window is that I have
maybe 2 windows providing a view on an editor open (eg, for showing a
.h and .cpp file, or two .cpp files when I'm trying to track down an
inconsistency in usage), an xterm for running the program being
developed and one xterm holding gnuplot and one gnuplot window (or
looking at accuracy plots (I tend to work on machine learning stuff
where you do that a lot). So it's all associated with one "human
level" task, but it's using multiple computer applications.

Likewise there are other situations, but they all tend to fall into
that category: I don't tend to have "separate human tasks" on screen
at the same time very much.
