Most of the times I just want to edit a single file and close sublime really quick, yet right now, I'm always presented with Sublime's "project mode" sidebar.
This prevents me from using Sublime as everyday all around text editor since the experience is not pleasant.
Besides that there should be not tabs if a window only has 1 file open.
The same goes for new windows, where a new file is created automatically.. not very sublime to have to take with a sidebar when all I want is to write some text..
