We have no regrets about the opening window above the sink, it's remarkable how well it works with the maxxfan fan for ventilation - we turn the maxxfan fan to exhaust at night, and it pulls the air in thru the window and exhausts thru the max fan - it seems to really help with condensation as well. Plus you can leave it open and not worry about the weather.

Love my small opening kitchen window.

Adds more light and provides nice ventilation.

I would not like the window frame that would be present on a sliding window. It is already a small window, you are obstructing your viewing area with that divider. Why an opening window when 24 inches away you have a vent that blows outside? Go 24 inches the other way and you have a screen door. Seems like overkill to me.

We have the window, but there was not an opening one available at that time. I really don't miss it not opening, as there are four big opening ones in each corner.

It does let in a little bit more light at the sink which is nice, but it really is not useful for looking out of.

If I had to do it all over again, I would likely still put one in. We don't need any more storage like a shelf over the sink for our needs.

We opted for the opening window in our 2013 5.0 - we had the closed one like Jim in the 2008 5.0. We love both windows! They let light in and let me check on the 'hood while I'm washing dishes! The opening one is the swing out from the bottom type (not the sliding bathroom window) and it works a treat to have it open in the rain.
People keep telling me that the window and/or blind will get splashes from the sink, after almost 6 years with a window there it hasn't been an issue. Unless you're a messy washer-upper, I suppose :-)
