It is not MS's fault and has nothing to do with "Font" scaling.
It is UI scaling for all the legacy programs that the established windows user base wants to keep running that will have issues.
Unless they go to some 2x scaling solution, exactly the same Apple does in rMBP and Samsung does with its own 1600p laptops, people will complain of unreadable UIs etc.
And that is not just an issue with the panels - probably we will have that as soon as 4K starts becoming more mainstream, but also the CPU and GPU working in tandem trying to upscale things.
Cause, you know, just like the rMBP with a Ivy Bridge and a 6xx GeForce that had issues catching up with fast scrolling webpages, it is likely scaling will work badly on older hardware. It is this double standard you know, that makes Metro or w/e MS comes up with a stupid idea that double crosses its customers, and w/e Apple comes up with, innovation, and if it is incompatible with what you do, is because you are outdated.
Oh, and please stop talking Mac Pro and $4xxx prices...that machine's config will be embarrassing on that price. Perior.
It will be "starting" at double that for anything that will be notably better than an iMac, and still far cheaper than what 2P workstations cost today...oh, I forgot, only the poor buy PCs...if they could afford Apple they wouldn't.
Also, if I read again speculations about the Mac Pro being so small to cater for designers and video editors on the move, I will just assume that I am reading far "less" than uneducated guesses.Edited by pcfoo - 9/1/13 at 11:32am
