Windows "Though Windows 7 doesn't quite have the same experience when it comes to resolution and scaling control as OS X does - it can be a bit of a chore to get it just the way you like it - it's still quite useable on the Retina MacBook Pro's 15" 2880 x 1800 pixel screen. I recommend running Windows at full resolution with the 150 percent scaling setting - that seemed to give the best overall usability. 'Retina' class desktop displays are still a relative rarity today, so it will be some time before software developers adapt applications to best take advantage of such a resolution. In the meantime, you should have no trouble running Windows on the Retina MacBook Pro if the need arises." A look at how Windows 8 handles the display would've been nice, too.

As D-Master-D pointed out below, Thom is referring to Windows 8. The article does reference another article which explains the Metro apps in Windows 8 have a new scaling system but in the consumer preview Desktop Mode uses the same system as Windows 7.

Going back to the original article, there are some interesting comments regarding Windows 8 running on the MacBook.
