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?

In theory, it should. But I've never seen XFree86/Xorg use anything other than 96 DPI unless I manually specify it.

Granted, I don't have any high-resolution/high-DPI screens available (19" 1280x1024 and 21"/24"? 1680x1050) to test with.
