[Fwd: Re: I messed up Xfree86]
? you do know about virtual desktop,viewport settings etc right ?
I currently run at 1280*1024 but with a desktop viewport of 800x600 ( on
17" monitor )
just upgraded to V5 and had a go at 1600*whatsit?, but it gives me more
to scroll around then i know what to do with. and i just CTRL - ALT <KP
+> or <KP -> to zoom in or out.
Unfortunately thats all the V5 appears good for at the moment ,the 3d
drivers appear to suck, but im sure they will improve, this is linux
after all , and debian to top it off - cant lose :).

OK I've never understood what's so great about high resolutions. The
higher the resolution, the smaller the stuff on your screen, the
closer to the screen you sit, the more you squint to see stuff, the
sooner you go blind. Also, the screen flickers more, so you go blind
*and* crazy faster than otherwise. Then again, it looks cool and
impresses your friends. "Ooh, 2048x1536. I can barely see your login
