    That would be less than 1600x1200.
    Don't you mean less than 1280x1024? Although technically it is also less than 1600x1200.

      If You count pixels, it would be less than 1280x1024. But who says there is any linear order amongst resolutions at all? I still think that this question was incorrectly formulated.

        The monitor question is traditionally difficult. Resolution across and expanded desktop, multiple monitors of varying sizes and different aspect ratios, refresh rates, etc etc etc, and then which is the primary display, which is secondary, etc etc etc.

          sorry, i couldn't go through the 7 pages of comments, so this may have been proposed.

          But can we have a simpler Survey next year, where most of the questions are the same for all your systems, and then you only add specific information for each of your systems? I was starting to participate, but when I realized I was only half way and I had 3 more full surveys to go I gave up

            Actually, it would be even better to run a program in each machine to generate all the hardware info, maybe a port of the ubuntu bug-report tool! This way it's also less likely that someone might cheat (not sure why would folks do that, but better safe than sorry)

              Otherwise it looks like that Single display gets unfair advantage.
              emm - no?

              people set up their display with randr - people set up multiple displays with randr
              peiple set up their display with xinerama - people set up multiple displays with xinerama.

                Yeah, but when asked in the way it was, it doesn't even correctly cover the most common single display case.

                  I think it's awesome that the open source Ati drivers have more users than fglrx.

                  I'm not sure I want the fglrx team working on the open source stuff though given their track record.

                    The error in the charts is important and misleading. Since some time ago I have the impression that Michael is really overloaded. There are a lot stuff on linux and OSS world, he can not track every software, driver, hardware, etc. correctly in a very professional way.

                    The amount of articles he writes and the test setups he prepares is a lot for only 1 person. Maybe a change on the methodology could be useful, write less articles, use less computers for the tests, or whatever is necessary.
