What to call The User?

We prefer the terms "person" or "customer" when referring to people who use our software in general, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for referring to them specifically?

Whitepaper on MDI vs. SDI interfaces?

Is there anyone who could point me toward some references that describe the
benefits of SDI interfaces over MDI interfaces (not tabbed MDI -
window-in-window MDI).

If you wait by the river long enough, eventually

this content in an expanded context".
2. Navigate to the rest of this content on a new page, e.g., "Read more
of this content in a new context"
3. Navigate to similar content on a new page, e.g., "Read more content
like this in a new context"
The link should communicate:
