Both Mac OS X (Starting with Tiger and then in Leopard) and windows XP/Vista
(WPF) supports
resolution independence. In Mac OS X, there is a concept of scaling factor
which automatically
scales the UI (not sure how well it works). If i am developing a graphics
application on Linux,
how does this work ? What should the application do to handle different
resolution ? I understand
that i can set different screen resolutions. But from the application
perspective, what should be
done for getting the UI (fonts, text, images...) scale better ?
