but *this position will block the work area*...!

and since there is no way to instantly dismiss the bubble ,
the *user is forced to shift focus from work*, and if he has to view the
background he has to switch from the keyboard and use the mouse to make
it invisible...

please reconsider this decision...

the ideal *position will be at the bottom* and making the notifications
grow upwards, bottom left or right would be the best choice ,since not
much happens at those areas , and that is the usual location for status bar.
