I made some small translation contibution for doctor windows years ago and had this account as a thank's from DC but never used it but now i'm realy needing something so i dare asking!
I've been searching for a long time already some software that would allow the use of a greater size desktop on a limitted display hardware.
I posted a thread about this on driverheaven.net, http://www.hardwareheaven...-1024x768-resolution.html
The main idea would be to have the graphic card to make some stretching over all displayed pixels making an emulated 1600x1024 or such resolution on a 1280x800 MAX screen....
My laptop screen gives me like as much workspace as if i wanted to build a titanic replica in a shoes box.
I saw some softwares meant for distant assistance ... Teamviewer. It can display any size screen from a distant place inside anything smaller screen, stretching all pixels, and the result is quite appreciable. Text is readable, images are well ballanced and makes no glitches.
I guess that DC is the best place to push the idea in as you seems like motivated programmers
Another request would be to find help for another coder who made some very awesome and useful software that makes windoes snaps to borders, to each others, taskbar and all whitch makes it easier to align multiple windoes... The author, Ivan Heckman, http://allsnap.org/ , is having a harsh time with it as he cant run both x86 and x64 versions at the same time... X64 based windowses uses both 32 bit and 64 bits applications but only one type or the other can be made snappable. If you guys could assist him into developping the app, it could become a worldwide used software easily
About making some resolution double-sizing... I guess that the best place to start hacking at would be the generic screen drivers... I'm realy unsure about the rest as i aint no professionnal but i whish my guess is right
I'll come back to that thread from time to time ounce in a while so i may see if it progresses
