Of course, the sentence should have been:

I would not increase the default window extent, rather reduce it instead.

I would not reduce the default window extent, rather reduce it instead. "Many small windows" are one killer feature of Squeak. Transcript, Preference Browser, MC Configurations - they are all slightly too large. The Method Finder, on the other hand, is their small but impressive sibling. :-)
