It does not seem like the SuSE developers have understood that wide screen monitors is the monitor standard of today. 90% of laptops ship with such resolutions (8:5 ratio monitors like 1440x900) and more than 50% of stationary systems also do, I believe.
It is almost 3 years ago that I posted this request first time. Instead SuSE developer team seems completely busy with contributing to the suicide of KDE (I am referring to the hopelessly inefficient and buggy KDE4, of course!). I hoped ever since 10.1 that this would be added, but I just checked that with the 11.2 ‘preview’ (or whatever the official name is) - and it is still not there.
Please support 1440*900 (and similar common proportional screen resolutions) ‘out of the box’ with the generic LCD monitor in SAXX and in the installation screen before 11.2 final! If not I am definitely off to Ubuntu of Fedora(where it works like a charm).
I would hate to drop SuSE, but both Ubuntu and Fedora seem to adopt to de facto hardware standards much better than SuSE!
