False. The problem with multiple panels is that they are constrained to fit within a single rectangular window. Multiple windows allows you to arrange your play area in any conformation you want; indeed you could have a discontinuous play area. In particular, if you want to spread across multiple displays, having panels within a single window often doesn't work well.

Or am I misunderstanding what you mean by panels?
