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?

XP isn't hardcoded to 120 DPI ... I dunno where you got this nonsense from.

The creator of cleartype was runn 200 DPI on his desktop in 2000 ... he said it was difficult to setup but not impossible.

I meant it had two pre-configured settings: 96 & 120 dpi. OEM's gave you one or the other, they NEVER setup your OEM PC or laptop with something else - that was left up to the end-user to experiment with.
