@Michael: WHAT THE HELL?
You are supposed to KNOW something about computers. About different operating systems and whatnot.
And it turns out, you have absolutely NO idea of them whatsoever.
Windows have no Hi-DPI support, thus the lack of high-res panels in that area.
Linux? Pfah. The new Gnome which got a clock and a shut down button (just a joke, it's how gnome evolves!), got Hi-DPI.
Of course the different toolkits will look like... ass. But you can have Linux.
Other than that...
Had to reinstall my PC recently and had the chance to install a Linux. Hell, I have way too much free time I guess.
- Download OpenSUSE 13.1 DVD.
-- ImageWriter.exe dies/cannot write to flash drive.
- Download OpenSUSE 13.1 KDE
-- Finally got a USB with an image.
- Install it.
- Partitioner sure is retarded (if you press back at the wrong time, you lose everything you set up there.)
- Finally installed it.
- System boots, of course my AMD GPU tries to launch my computer into the orbit with it's 100% spinning fans.
- Trying to update, no internet.
- No default internet. On a release version. On a major distro. .... No comment.
- Of course, ethernet names are now retarded. Sure is good when you mess up something that worked for decades.
-- ipaddr, dhcpcd. got working net. 2014, and Linux desktop, here we go!
- Reboot when asked. ( Linux doesn't need reboots... :^) )
- Trying to bookmark a page in Firefox, get a full lock up. (yay.)
- Second time I was able to kill xdm and restart it.
- Install fglrx since the open-sauce driver is terrible. Follow instructions...
- Installs. And it still fails.
- Nothing works after reboot, spend 30 minutes fixing it.
- Finally decide I should just read or clean up, delete Linux.
... all my regrets.
