Not to turn this into a flame session ... BUT :D

I set my screen at a very high resolution specifically SO I can fit more 
stuff on the visible page.  I know how I WANT to read websites.

You can always make your browser be smaller to SHRINK the lines to 
whatever size you want ... however I CANNOT make your artificial 
boundaries bigger at all.

SO, why would we FORCE a certain page width on people if there is no 
technical reason why it is required.

OBVIOUSLY it is not desired by everyone ... and if we fail full screen 
then you have another option.  But if we fail 1/2 screen the people who 
want it like me have NO OTHER options ...

I'm just saying :D
