    A lot of people are still using 9" and 10" netbooks with resolution 1024*600, which is difficult to display enough content on screen by default.

    Should we make a theme / control set for 1024*600, such that fonts are by default small, window has narrower title area, use smaller 16*16 icons etc etc. Anything good for screens with limited vertical pixels.

    Sure, why not? We have a pair of netbooks running Windows 7 and frankly by dinking with Windows' own icon sizes and the various font sizings we've never felt the need for more.

    But hey, that's just us. When it comes to the visual pleasures ... whatever floats your boat.

    Theme you create will fit usually on every resolution.
    You can modify resources and text dimensions too(exept the smaller set by windows text dpi to 100%), but believe me it a enormous work, changing all font dimensions from 9(Defalt value) to for ex 7 or 6, readability becomes difficult, as creating a theme on Netbook displays..... :(

    I dunno know who's going to call the ball :movingtongue:
