Intel It looks like 2013 is finally going to be the year that we're going to see truly high resolution displays - according to Intel. Retina displays for laptops and desktops for everyone. Considering promises regarding HDPI have been thrown our way for years now, it's high time they became reality. As the article mentions, there's one interesting possible issue: Windows 8's desktop mode. How will it handle HDPI displays?

X11 does do that, if the monitor returns valid information (many don't) then X11 will set the DPI accordingly.
It's a pet hate of mine that systems other than X11 completely ignore this information, it makes high dpi screens a pain in the ass to use.
