I should have thought of what you suggested to Manuel.  Come to think of it, my
Dad has run his Xy-3 on up to 17-inchers, at 800 x 600, and I probably had -- at
least subconsciously -- a similar reaction to the display.  When I tried to promote
the idea of a higher res., he objected that icons and titles on desktop items then
became too small.
