I have a bit more workspace near the cooktop than you do, but not much. I guess that's the dirty little secret of kitchen islands. You do have good counter space directly behind the cooktop, whereas I have the sink to my back -- but I guess that has advantages, too. Whine whine whine!
Also, as I've said before, I hate not having a range hood -- the down draft thing is only marginal. If I ever redo the kitchen that's one major change I'll make.
