... as they have done for years in MacOSX?

To be fair, I think everything would just work in Linux as well if they had a limited amount of hardware to support and full specs on all of it like Apple does.

Take the support for hi-res screens. Why aren't 1440x900, 1680x1050, etc. not supported?

That's always confused me too. It seems like it would be one of the easier things to fix and yet no one ever seems to do it.

1680x1050 has worked out of the box for me for several years with several different distributions.
