I think having the option of several windows is a good thing and all applications that use multiple windows should offer this.
I don't personally care about gimp.
I use it from time to time, but I would not claim to be a professional artist.
I do use another type of applications that desperately needs this feature: IDE's.

An IDE have a ton of windows / panes / whatever you call it.
They are usually tiled inside a single window.
A lot of the windows do not require any interaction.
My window manager is much better to handle windows than the IDE.
It have concepts like different monitors, desktops etc that can be used.
A good example would be the build output of an application. There is no reason why you wouldn't want the build output to be fullscreen.
The editor should also be full screen.
The debugging, show variable window thing should be full screen or at least be larger.
I know it is a lot harder to program things like that and that is why they don't do it.
A lot of people use a single monitor anyway so it is not that big a deal, but it is still a bad design to not have the option of a multi window setup

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand GIMP. The interface is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical computing most of the widgets will go over a typical user’s head. There’s also GIMP’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into its interface- the developers' personal philosophy draws heavily from Stallman literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these design decisions, to realise that they’re not just superior- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike GIMP truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the genious in GNU's recursive acronym “GNU's Not Unix!” which itself is a cryptic reference to Stallman's autism. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Richards’s genius wit unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them.

And yes, by the way, i DO have a GIMP tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid

Because most users don't want single window mode. They only included it to please a very small handful of users that requested it, and since it was an incredibly simple request, they fulfilled it.

The majority of gimp users prefer the multi window default because it's easier to arrange tools around the workspace than within the constraints of a single window. It also allows for things like resizing a single image in a project while still being able to see reference material outside of the gimp. Like if you're drawing a bird, for example, and you're looking at sample images - you can resize your current canvas to take up all but the space for the sample image but without losing canvas space to the main window

Unlike Photoshop, which doesn't use a multitude of small windows as in pic related?
The only difference is that Gimp lets you choose your own window manager to handle those windows in a way that is optimal for you instead of forcing one, singular, suboptimal method upon you. The fact that MS Windows only has a crappy window manager and thus can't do that is hardly Gimp's fault.
