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?

Windows fully supported high DPI apps written using Windows Presentation Foundation e.g. since Vista. GDI/GDI+ apps had to be made DPI-aware by developer (XP in 2001). But every occasion is good to bash Microsoft.
