This was true a year or two ago, but does it still hold with the move to
Windows 95? In theory, Windows 95 Setup sets SVGA (or better) display
capabilities automatically. In practice, I don't know how well this works.

Does anyone know the statistics? At what resolution and number of colors do
most users actually run their systems? Is there a difference in this
respect between home users, business users, and computer professionals
(other than graphic artists)?
