      How many of you running Windows 7 have gotten the mouse a little bit too
      close to the task bar and had those obnoxious preview windows pop up
      right over top of the piece of your document that you wanted to select?
      And how many of you have clicked on the little tiny X on that preview
      window thinking it would make the preview go away (no, it closes the
      REAL window!).

      Rest assured, Julian. If I ever do hover, it will be a purely
      configurable option that I expect 80% of the people will turn off after
      actually using the client in their area for more than a few days. The
      last thing I need is more little windows fading in and out when I just
      shove the mouse out of the way of my editor and have it land on top of
      my APRSIS32 window.

At least half the time I find it irritating because it isn't. For example there's a website that expands images whenever you hover over a thumbnail. Half the time the expanded image of the thumbnail you passed over obscures what you actually wanted to click on.
