I'd rather see the windows turn into a long and relatively high window running the length of the plane.
The CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario has a very thick glass for a floor over a small section so you can look strait down. You can walk over it safely with no problems, but it freaks the hell out of most people. When I went to visit it I had no problems but my 3 friends wouldn't go within a foot of the glass part of the floor. The vast majority of the other visitors reacted the same way, they'd lean over to take a quick look and then move away never setting foot on the glass.
