Philosophically speaking, if you keep the user from resizing
the window, it should be a window that the user will not
NEED to resize. This means...
* It should not be larger than the screen resolution.
Accounting for things like taskbars (which some users
don't like to set to AutoHide), that means no more
than about 620x440 tops.
* It should not contain a text widget. If the user is
entering text, they'll want to resize it.
* It should not contain more information than will
fit, and it should not need scrollbars. (These
are equivalent.) Note that this should be true
even if the user has diddled the font size in
the control panel to as much as 400%, because
there are people who do that.
* It should not have a lot of empty space. This
should be true even if the user has left the
font size in the control panel at 100%. Combine
this with the previous, and that means the window
should not contain much text at all. (If you
can resize the window automatically based on the
size of the contained text, okay, but make sure
this doesn't break under adverse circumstances
and leave some text invisible.)
* It should not be a window that the user is likely
to want to display side-by-side with another
window (because if they do they'll probably want
to resize it).
Putting all that together, we're pretty much looking
at one-liner dialogue boxes with a couple of buttons.
Anything else the user may need to resize. Otherwise
you're going to annoy your users.
