Oh. That's a bit disappointing considering the little amount of work involved for a fix (change one variable). Maybe you're right and maybe we have to get used to it.
But I for one genuinely dislike it. It distracts me and now I have to look at it for four hours a day. There's a lot of stuff that distracts me, that's why I was in love with the fullscreen, distraction-free mode. There are a number of posts on this in this forum, so this is a thing for at least some of your users.
EDIT: I just wanted to add that I do like a lot of the other changes and added options.
