Just FYI, since you asked for feedback (and because most of my
colleagues say the same as you):  I use 17" monitors everywhere, and I
run at either 800x600 or 1024x768 resolution depending on which
version of OtherOS[TM], or KDE, I'm using.  I've tried running at
higher resolutions, but frankly I value my eyesight, and feel it would
suffer if I used such resolutions on 17" screens.  My eyesight is
basically OK, but my eyes (irises) have a tendency to become inflamed
if I incur eye-strain ...

So spare a thought for those of us with less-than-electron-microscope
vision capability please :-)

I realise you're only talking about default-setting here, but I've
noticed that KDE already looks a lot better at 1024x768 than at
800x600 ... as if the higher resolutions are being "designed in".

Just my 2p.

The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world.
