    Default 2010 Linux Graphics Survey

    Phoronix: 2010 Linux Graphics Survey

    For the past three years we have hosted an annual Linux Graphics Survey in which we ask tens of thousands of users each time their video card preferences, driver information, and other questions about their view of the Linux graphics stack. This year we are hosting the survey once again to allow the development community to get a better understanding of the video hardware in use, what open-source and closed-source drivers are being used, and other relevant information that will help them and the Linux community.

    It's always difficult figuring out which range widescreen resolutions fall into. I have a 160x1050 monitor, is that bigger or smaller than 1600x1200? Same with my 1366x768 (IIRC) laptop monitor. Is that bigger or smaller than 1280x1024?

    Maybe Michael should clarify that for next year?

    1600*1200 = 1.9M
    1600*1050 = 1.7M
    -> 1600x1200 > 1600x1050

    1280*1024 = 1.3M
    1366*768 = 1.0M
    -> 1280x1024 > 1366x768

    Many questions in the survey are lacking the important answer option: "Given up many years ago trying to setup all that."
