    Got mine about a year ago. It's the 910T and it's been the best monitor I've owned, so far. Text and images are exceptionally sharp!
    I wish I had space to run dual 930B's, my QuadroFX 1100 supports dual digital outputs

    I use 2048x1536 on my main workstation. The KDE desktop plays nicely with larger fonts, thankfully.

    The other resolution I regularly use is 1280x960 (my HTPC, my spare workstation, and my wife's computer). I consider 1280x1024 resolution to be a perverse abomination. It isn't a standard 4:3 aspect ratio, so standard background wallpapers don't fill it properly.

    Neither of these resolutions is listed in this poll.

    1600x1200, and I would run my ViewSonic A95f 19" CRT higher, but it isn't supposed to be run higher, though it will do it, I don't want to damage it. It's been a good monitor for me.

    I'd like to get a 21" CRT next. I just can't see going LCD if I can't choose the res, so until they find a way to change that (how?)...

    it's strange how many people use 1280x1024 considering it's not even 4:3 ratio. iirc it's 5:4. the guy that came up with it must have been doing it for a bet because i used to think that 1280x960 (4:3) was strange
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    I use 1280x1024 on desktops and 1900x1080 on laptop (perfect for some HDTV viewing).
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Yeah - I used to have one of those monitors.

    Now my laptop runs at 1280x800. And nothing else. I even changed my server's VNC server to the same res so I could use it full screen on the laptop from any OS and still get the full Linux experience. Does that make me a bit of a saddo?
