When I replaced my desktop with a new computer, I kept my TFT screen. It
has the non-standard size of 1440x900.

Recently, I have been wondering if it would be better for me to have
1600x1200 screen. Would this be better for Linux software? What about HD
TV? And movies?

Any comments welcome

A higher resolution provides you with additional space to locate windows
or viewing more content in them. I will pay additional €€€ for that, it's
worth of it, IMO, and not for the software (HD and videos will be
accomodated to fit whatever resolution you have) but for you :-)


Well, I was asking my friendly computer consultant something about
networking and spotted a large screen on the shelf. It was an iiyama
ProLite E2208HDD. Just unboxed and definitely new. The asking price was
£125 which I thought reasonable since that obviously included delivery.
Removed my 1440x900 monitor, connected up the 1920x1080 monitor using
the same cables (mains and DVI-D) and now I have an excellent screen:
more space on-screen, sharp letters and the HD TV is truly excellent.
This is the best reproduction I've ever had. Definitely a good buy.
