Comment on Bodega

Yeah I agree with that logic, @bitnix . Bodega causes two problems for me that make it feel 'in the way.' First, the awning isn't really attached to the window, and so the whole thing feels very loose and clumsy when the window gets moved around. Second, and probably more importantly, the awning is wider than the window just for the sake of looking nice. But this, in turn, limits my ability to click-through, to see my windows underneath, etc.

I think that playing with the limits of the Human Interaction Guidelines can be a good thing, and that eye-candy can be practical and often actually help a user out. But in this case, I think it's detrimental to what would otherwise be a pleasant experience.
