Dell 2707WFP 27 inch Ultrasharp Wid LCD Screen on Linux

My new Dell 2707 27″ arrived two days ago. I was using 19″ Viewsonic LCD. New screen was automatically detected by Ubuntu Linux. All I had to do was switch to 1920×1200 screen resolution from old 1440×900. LCD screen is absolutely beautiful and provides sharp clear images.

    congrats! +) Dell’s monitors are definitely the best.

    How do you organize your desktop? Have you tried tiled-WMs, like wmii or ion3?

    Currently, I’m using old program called gimmie. Can you tell me more about wmii or ion3? Have you tried these programs?

    Excuse me, but 1920×1200 and 27″??
    That’s for nearly blind people, 1920×1200 should go on 23″ or smaller.

    Stu, way to waste server space with an utterly clueless and unneeded opinion. You justify the existence of abortion clinics. Of all the million things you revealed with that unnecessary statement, the things you need to learn the first thing about is quality, typography, ergonomy, and optometry.

    In the brave new world of suck that is all things LCD, it’s actually one of the least sucky ones 😉
