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?

Are you using Gnome ? For a long time (and I think it is still the case), Gnome has enforced a DPI of 96, no matter what the hardware or X11 says, with some hidden option to overrule this.
