So with even a $399 tablet doing 2560x1600 pixel displays, can we please just make that the new standard laptop resolution? Even at 11"? Please. Stop with the "retina" crap, just call it "reasonable resolution". The fact that laptops stagnated ten years ago (and even regressed, in many cases) at around half that in both directions is just sad.

I still don't want big luggable laptops, but that 1366x768 is so last century. Christ, soon even the cellphones will start laughing at the ridiculously bad laptop displays.

And the next technology journalist that asks you whether you want fonts that small, I'll just hunt down and give an atomic wedgie. I want pixels for high-quality fonts, and yes, I want my fonts small, but "high resolution" really doesn't equate "small fonts" like some less-than-gifted tech pundits seem to constantly think.

In fact, if you have bad vision, sharp good high-quality fonts will help. #noexcuses

When I worked at SAP, I started playing around with linux. As a developer, I found it much more inviting than windows. If I remember right, one of the reasons I switched to linux was that it booted much faster than the corporate image on the SAP laptop. The IT team at SAP labs india are super cool. All they wanted me to do was to boot to windows once a fortnight to let the updates run. Otherwise they we quite helpful. They were using SSO by PSE Secude and that installed a SSL Client cert. With a little bit of googling around I got most of the internal apps working on firefox, had my mails on Evolution and was overall quite happy with the setup.

I guess a good enterprise knows when to back off and let their employees do their thing.
