Well, I know what you mean, but that's just a typical "status-bar" placed to where it's supposed to be, and it's generally good practice to follow the "common user interface" design rules for desktop-based GUIs.

Also, the pop-up texts are actually called tool-tips, and they are set for nearly everything, the status-texts are not.
