Mac has UI Guide Lines who are much stronger then on many other Systems.
One of this Guide line is to keep any settings in the Preferences. It's
on the same places on any Mac Programm. You confuse all experianced Mac
Users, if you change this.

So a big -100 from my side.

We should maybe create a Tutorial about the differences.
