Whenever I see a switch style checkbox in the Preferences section I want to change its state by clicking the switch and sliding it to the left or right. The switch responds to my action by sliding a few pixels in the desired direction, but then stopping. "That's weird", I think. "Why doesn't it go all the way?", I wonder. Then I remember: "oh, they are like iOS 6 checkbox that are disguised as switches that you can slide, but that actually only respond to being clicked, just like a checkbox!"
(see what the top slide does when it's dragged to the left)
Here are my suggestions to fix this (in order of my preference)
Make the checkboxes look like checkboxes;
Keep the switch style checkboxes, but make them change state by sliding too;
Otherwise don't make the checkbox respond to sliding at all (to prevent stupid users like me from thinking they are slide-able)
