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?

No, I'm KDE across the board. Can't stand GNOME, or even GTK+ (but that's not germane to this discussion).

Hrm, interesting, looking through xdpyinfo output on various systems, it looks like Xorg is now adjusting the DPI. It's all below 96 DPI, but at least it's different across systems now.

Guess I just haven't checked in a long time. ;)
