Windows "If you are running a screen resolution of 1366x768 on a tablet, chances are that UI will look good at 100% DPI settings. But what about when you connect that tablet to an external high resolution display? In Windows 8 you can choose either 100% to optimize the UI on the tablet display or up to 150% to optimize the UI on the external display. You have to compromise. Windows 8.1 takes care of this issue by supporting per-display DPI scaling." That's pretty cool. Do other systems support this?

I looked around for a reference and I found this, talking about hiDPI support for Gnome. He mentions using different scaling factors for different outputs.

The link is http://blogs.gnome.org/alexl/2013/06/28/hidpi-support-in-gnome/
