I thought we agreed that we'd change it to be resizable to a 3.1 inch window
if there was a lot of interest in that.  Then when everyone got used to that,
we'd make a 3.2 inch window available.  We'd time these carefully at six month
intervals so as not to alarm anyone.

Then by 2010 we'd have something like a 4.4 inch window available.

"A 4.4 inch window should be enough for anyone."

And you can quote me on that.



You could outsmart cgf by buying a larger monitor. What appears as a 3-inch window on a 15-inch monitor would be 4.5-inch on a 22-inch screen. By 2010, 45-inch monitors will be common place, and setup's chooser will thus be (wow!) 9 inches wide; that's double what cgf is promising you!
