Shouldn't the progress bars be

Shouldn’t the progress bars be resizable in modern operating systems?

I was at a client and wanted to see how far along a certain task was, but I was across the room and couldn’t resize the damn thing to be visible down the hall. They added drop shadows to the cursor in Windows 2000 and can’t make it easier to see how far along the loading of a web page has progressed?

And Windows is much more accessible than MacOS, or especially Linux. I like BeOS in concept, how is its accessibilty? Let me know!
