As everybody understands that will never work.
You are not seeing straight. I'm one of the most active people going against your cursade against 16:10. See how I worded that? I'm not against 16:9, in fact, I find 16:9 quite enjoyable for some things, but I just don't find aspect ratio that important.
Most of the time, you'll see me recommending 16:9 monitors. Why? Because they fit the application well enough and to get to 16:10 that is otherwise equivalent, you might end up paying almost twice the price, which doesn't fit the persons budget most of the time.
Also no 120hz 16.10 monitors above 1680x1050
How's that for "attempting to make people go back to 16:10"?
The reason why I'm going against most of what you post is because you are in fact the one lying. Support for 16:10 is dropping? Where?
This is the reply to the copypaste post you copypaste everywhere, you don't need to post it here. VVV
The field of view issue is not a support thing, it's the result of simple maths, which also means some aspect ratios would see more than 16:9. The game support thing? You've twisted it, so it doesn't matter, the actual list would be different. Letterboxing in movies also happens on 16:9. And the last bit about windows 8 being best on 16:9, that's simply marketing. The marketing team might've said it, but it is irrelevant what is said, another logical fallacy you make too often. Just because X is designed for Y doesn't mean it's best on Y. Otherwise you'd be playing your games on consoles.
And that comment only applies for the metro UI on windows 8, which cannot possibly have issues with simply increasing the vertical resolution. Besides, a huge portion of windows 8 systems (prebuilt, laptops, etc) will have non 16:9 monitors, mainly low end 16:10 and 5:4 monitors. Microsoft will simply not drop support for them, that'd just be bad business.
If you feel like replying, reply to this by actual DIRECT reply, not by copypasting that crappy post of yours like you always do. I've seen it, I think I might almost recreate it including each of the typos in it from my head if I was ordered to. I know the message, it is false.
At your edit: Yet another argumentum ad populum, the percentage of users of something does not dictate how good it is, neither does the percentage of people who think it's good affect how good it is.
