Hardware, Embedded Systems News of the year in the technology industry. "The Fit's most important spec its display, with a nod to Sony's TV division: they come with 1600x900 or 1920x1080 touchscreens and nothing else. 'We're not going to offer 1366x768," reps said. 'We've killed that.'" This is Sony's new, simplified entry-level notebook line. Very, very welcome news in a world where even a supposedly "Pro" laptop that costs $1199 ships with... A 1280x800 resolution. This bottom-of-the-barrel crap needs to be eradicated, and good on Sony for taking this step.

People complain about widescreen monitors, but they are a huge advantage if you use a tiling window manager. You can use 2 windows side-by-side and even eliminate the need for 2 monitors in some cases, without the burden of resizing them manually.

I know there are tiling software for Mac and Windows, however, they are too limiting when compared with those available for X11.
