aaa, than for the present. downloading ...
I am about to buy a new computer this week on which I'll be designing web pages and art stuff. I have never been exposed to the 1024x768 resolution before, since our computers in house are set to 800x600 and always have been.
I am trying to figure out why a person would change resolution to 1024x768 since it shrinks type, images, desktop icons because that is what happened when I tried the resolution change on our ibm thinkpad.
I know they allow gamers to get deeper color of depth and greater detail on their games, but on websites it shrinks text and images to squinty levels.
I've been searching the web for the past hour for some sort of clue about what the point is in using it.
Please don't take me as a hostile individual resistant to change, I'm really trying to figure this out before I put together my new system.
Also, there is a lot in css allowing you to set image sizes by pixels, and position by pixels. But if you do this, wouldn't it look a bad in 1024 x 768?
Maybe someone could explain the point of it to me, since I really am lost.
Thanks for any help,
The reason to run at a higher resolution is that you can get a lot more stuff on your screen... you can have multiple applications open and viewable, you can compare documents, you can see a lot more code at once without having to scroll. I run at 1280 x 1024 and I always wince when I do anything on a computer set to 800 x 600.
It does make everything smaller and that's where a larger monitor comes in... with my 17" LCD I can see everything fine at 1280...
where i can download the rpm or tarball of nvu 0.70?on the main site www.nvu.com there is not
