A tab contains any number of windows
A window shows a single buffer
A buffer can appear in any number of windows (even zero) in any number
What Simon is pointing out, is that "tab" is a bad name for the "tab
pages" in Vim, because users expect them to act like tabs in other
text editors, where you are locked into a single file per tab, and
only one tab per file. In Vim, a tab-page is really more like a
"workspace" which you can use for a large variety of things.
See http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Tabs for some ideas and details.
