A GUI observation: Successful GUIs, for the most part, never adapted to widescreens.
In fact, just as widescreen adoption was taking off in the mid 2000s, GUIs instead got *taller*, with things like the Ribbon concept.
@bhtooefr There's only one thing to do... get rid of widescreens.
@bhtooefr I feel like the only reason I'm happy using an 2560x1080 screen is because it feels like working on two seamless 1280x1024 screens with a tiny bit more vertical space. That next to my 1600x1200 NEC makes for a nice workspace. I never understood 16:9.
@bhtooefr @halfur @coryw I probably should have said "business laptop." All of these closely resemble the Surface family, which makes me think the presence of 3:2 displays is nothing more than a few vendors noticing the economies of scale created by Microsoft and putting its suppliers' panels in their own variants. All touchscreen convertibles or UltraBooks (if that is still what people call them). It would be nice if that sparked interest in them elsewhere, but I'm not counting on it.
