It's important to remember that a window is the base (parent), and a dialog is a type of window (overloaded with alternative default functionality). If the dialog functionality isn't needed then a window is usually better (least yea be destined to work around said unused features in the future).

Could always see what the horse has to say...

I vote for the basic window.
Any level of customization is possible.
A dialog is really just a predefined window.
The window class and procedure determine its look and feel.
You can make buttons or any other type of custom window.

offtop: i don't like desktop - unuseful thing!
it's could be better replaced with process monitor or prompt...

it could be better to be GUI mode under text mode together in time
