True, but if the OS designers could improve a bit more on this field, I guess that problem would be solved without much trouble (last time I remember changing DPI on control panel, everything was horrible, situation may have improved though). Vectors can be a much better option than fixed size pixels, for UI, which is something that doesn't require the details of say, a photo. It's mostly vector-based (the idea). Games, fidelity for text (screen preview->paper) and, of course, the market for pro image manipulation could benefit from high DPI screens. IIRC (since I'm no Apple user), I believe the fruit company is more on the vanguard than MS. I wondered that when I was testing Safari (didn't like, but still...) and re-remembered how different their font rendering engine is different from the MS concept. I would like a high res I could effectively use!!
