Why? I'm a bit tired of the update window when I'm not updating. I prefer the current 'home node' interface of not including the update form when you are only looking (except I'd like "view above update form" after applying or for previewing an update). But I certainly don't see how either is "many many times better".

I'd rather see my nodes much closer to the same way others see them. For example, the big input box skews the display in none-too-subtle ways. The effect is particularly obnoxious when I'm working in a small window (but is annoying to me even when working in a huge window).

And the real problem with scratchpads is that they are fields in the 'user' record and they should instead be node types. Hacks and work-arounds are being done to sort of compensate for this when the effort should probably instead be toward fixing the root problem.

My original comment was a sideways dig at how "bolted on" scratchpads are. There are several poor user interface issues with them currently, only one of which was just noticed and has now been improved a bit (thanks, theorbtwo).
