    2727After significant improvements of the Data Catalog [https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/GSoC/2020/StartupWindow], which led to the creation of a new startup mechanism and the removal of the startup screen, another topic enhancing the user experience comes into consideration - a Single-Window User Interface.
    2828All historical versions of GRASS GIS are spread across multiple screens. It can be beneficial for some, but it can be a bit annoying as well - e.g. tabs in Layer Manager can cause trouble to new users. The new design would therefore assume that all panels would be visible immediately after startup.
    29 The fact that a Single Window layout would really be appreciated by users can also be deduced from the surveys conducted in my master thesis [https://github.com/ctu-geoforall- lab-projects/dp-kladivova-2021/blob/master/text/linda-kladivova-dp-2021.pdf].

    3030Of course, especially long-term users can prefer the existing multi-window layout, so the original option will be retained. The Single-Window GUI will be built "next to" the existing Multi-Window GUI. As an example, the GIMP software works similarly. It is also left to the user the option to switch to multi-layout, but by default, it starts in a single layout.
