I do disagree with this, as I resize config dialogs that contain long lists so that I may see more of the list at once. Just because we make sure that the default size is suitable for people with 640x480 screens, doesn't mean those of us with larger monitors have to be constrained to that size. Sometimes shading is used to temporarily get that large, resized window out of the way. B-) On the other hand, maybe you are only talking about the simple Yes/No, OK/Cancel type popups, that wasn't clear. Those can be fixed size, with a title bar though. Still not sure why you would disallow shading though. I could never understand the people that insist on restricting functionality for no good reason. There needs to be a really good reason if you ever decide to stop the power user from being able to do anything they want. "I never use it" is not a good reason.
