I'd like to point out something here that a lot of people, particularly those
with Windows backgrounds, don't realize.
Higher resolution in X doesn't have to mean smaller fonts. By properly
setting you DPI in your X configuration (many monitors report their size
automagically, saving you the trouble) a 12pt font is a 12pt font regardless
Now, granted, graphics and whatnot are still going to be smaller on a high-res
display, as are some bitmapped fonts, but for the most part, higher
resolution just means greater clarity.
