For sure. I hate leading a group and having to keep opening up the window to see if everyone had readied up. If it was a permanent window I could play around in the mech lab or something and simply have to glance to the side instead of acting like I have OCD checking the separate window every 5 secs so other people don't have to wait on me. Whoever does their UI doesn't understand how people play games at all. I'd like to think this is just a placeholder and it will get a complete overhaul, but it seems this is it besides minor changes.
