Generally speaking, all windows will eventually leak water. Slanting them at an angle will emit more water sooner.
It can be tempting to buy used glass for your passive solar project. Be aware that most glass (glazing) currently available is Low E which typically translates to a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient SHGC. This can have a serious negative impact to the design.
Most passive solar designers try to get a whole window SHGC of .5 or above. The best passive solar glass is Low E and High SHGC. This glass will let the sunlight in and allow the interior space to lose less heat through the reflective properties of the Low E coating.
The best glass currently available is Cardinal's Low E 180. http://www.cardinalcorp.com/products/coated-glass/loe-180-glass/
