small poll regarding window maximizing

I was wondering whether I could do a quick poll, to see what
the users think of window maximizing.

I found when I switched to XFCE 4.12, and in particular to the xfwm
that goes with it, that when I move a window which has been maximized,
the window now immediately reverts back to its initial size. I created
an online survey for this to ask all users how they like this new

I would be very grateful if you took a minute to answer the two
multiple-choice questions the survey asks. I'll give the survey
a few weeks, and then report back here what the answers were.

Full disclosure: I supported a bug report that requests this behavior
be either reverted or configurable:
My purpose with this initiative is not to convince anyone, but to
figure out what people think, and provide that as feedback to
the PR above, whatever the results might be. That's the best way
I could think of to do this without starting a troll...

Thank you!
