I asked Intel support about it, and shortly after they responded that wide-screen resolution is indeed supported in the Q965 chip. Now all that is left is to find out how well it is supported in the new xorg 7.2 driver.
The problem with wide screen resolutions on linux is in i810 drivers, that receives supported resolutions list from bios and someone in intel was too lazy to fill more possible resolutions (like widescreens).
It is problem for older chipsets also, but 965 is the latest and not yet supported by 915resolution utility or X.org itself.
There is a patch for 915resolution somewhere on the web, but it is not works for me: i have true 1440x900 desktop bot still non-widescreen display and need to scroll desctop to se the whole contents.
if anyone have had any success with patched 915 resolutions please tell me how you got it working? (-:
