I would say that it is becoming very common if this is not already the case. Microsoft has been marketing the Surface Pro on all fronts, to the extent that it can be seen to have the processing capabilities of a desktop machine.

It is a shortcut. If your cursor happens to be over on the left side then to close I have less travel to cover to close a window, then to move my hand all the way over the mouse pad to the right side.

I think in general the users will give you the best answer, and in the case where you don't have any information to go on, then consistency and conformance is the safe default option. As for your questions: how far can you take this design? can you provide some screenshots to see what the difference in styling and behaviour is? I don't think the windows ...
