I'm thinking about changing the startup form size for JADE LSG.

I'm just wondering what kind of screen sizes are being used.

Right now, JADE LSG opens at 640 x 480.

            What size and brand monitor do you have Todd? That sounds like it is a movie theater.

              I voted incorrectly.  I just looked it up and it's 1024 x 768.  (thought it was 1280)   I have a laptop with a 15" screen.

                    My desktop, believe it or not, has a 14" monitor...really old but not bad for my backup computer.

                      KyMystikal -  I liked my desktop a lot better as far as its design goes, but it was outdated and I upgraded as much as I could.  I had to get a laptop for a job, and buying 2 computers was out of my budget. My laptop is okay and it's convenient to shlep around, but dollar for dollar, the desktops I saw were a better value...faster processors, many more USB ports, better speakers, more RAM, etc. (I am not a technical expert, just my opinion.)  I ordered 512mb from Crucial the day after I bought this, then I bought an optical mouse and then I added speakers.  I suppose the best thing would be to own both a desktop and a laptop.

                      Dell 30" widescreen.  It's actually much better than the Apple (I looked at both, and my old one was an Apple 23").

                            So what's the top resolution on the 32"?

                              I'd put the emphasis on justxploring's answer. Monitors are pretty inexpensive now, but there are still plenty of people using  15 inch monitors at 800 by 600, and scrolling horizontally is a pain, so my opinion would be to not go any wider than necessary to display the information. If you've got an image or a table that needs to be more than 800 pixels wide some people will just have to deal with the horizontal scrolling. Text that's too narrow is annoying, but it has to be extremely narrow to be more annoying than having to scroll horizontally for every single line of text. Before I  upgraded to a bigger monitor I started running into a lot of sites that required horizontal scrolling. The web has thousands of times more information than I could look at in a lifetime, so unless I really wanted to read something that  required horizontal scrolling I moved on without reading.  Assuming you want people to stick around, you want things to be convenient for them. My guess is that people with smaller desktops will be more unhappy about scrolling sideways  than people with wide desktops will be about scrolling down more than necessary.
