Just curious if the FM Alt gear forum also correspond to the world wide internet in terms of most common screen resolution.
I wouldn't expect it to. I think the general population is still in the 1024-1280 long-side area, with incremental increases. The most noticeable stat is in the opposite direction, with smart phones (of many variations) becoming more wildly accessible, a lot of people are finding the average, or popular screen resolutions used to view a site dropping towards mobile displays. With that in mind, It still boggles me why people still use flash-only sites... it's basically sticking the finger at the viewer, saying "I'm more important than you"... all IMO of course.
We're all keen photographers, so we're naturally using higher resolution and larger displays than the most common screens out there. Both of mine are 1920 long-side, but I do often visit on my phone if I'm passing time, looking for information, or if something comes to mind whilst on the go.

Windows 8 I didn't think that was released yet?
Windows 8 is in public beta, free download at Microsoft.
The nice thing about the Windows 8 specific apps is that all of them are full screen natively. Very clean, intuitive and easy to use once you get used to it imo. Dare I even say very Apple-like (though I think in some ways, Windows 8 out apples Apple even).
