Tents, specifically the Eureka K2

There are so many tents out there, good ones, bad ones, cheap ones, expensive ones, heavy ones, lights ones. But having looked over more than a few retailers websites, I come back to only one that peaks my interest. The Eureka K2.
What does Don want in a tent? Glad you asked. I really despise that all the tents have mesh walls. I have a couple cheap Colemans like that, and all the expensive ones are the same. Seriously, this is so not helpfull. I need a tent that keeps the night wind out in the winter at JTree and in the summer in Mammoth. Also keeps the sand out. These nonclosing mesh window just don't cut it. Same for some privacy when I change. Seriously, no one wants to see that. So what does everyone do? Put the fly on. So not helpful. Too much breeze in the winter nights, freeze your behind off. Too little breeze on a summer day, bake your brains. Mad [/rant]
I would love a tent that had lots of windows that zip open and closed. I could pitch it without the fly. Open the windows to cool off/dry out during the day, close to warm up at night. Throw the fly on when it looks like rain, leave it off when it doesn't. Makes sense to me. It also needs to be sturdy. The winter winds blow strong and gusty.
It appears then that the Eureka K2 fits the bill. I have read that all the windows zip close. And it has a ton of them.
So. Does anyone out there have one? Does it function like I think? Am I missing something?
Does anyone out there make one like it for large families?

Apparently I am the only one who is hating on the all mesh sidewal tent.
That can't zip closed to keep the winter winds out.
That can't zip closed to give you privacy for changing without the fly which turns the tent into a cookbox in the summer.
