I'd like to be able to set display resolution to numbers I like, instead of relying on those few that the VESA interface provides.

Hi Neil.

I didn't get this one, since I only have 1920x1080 monitors or less.
Do you mean that in Panorama there is missing some configuration for higher resolutions? or custom resolutions? Is there any resolution number that is giving you problems?

Regard

I may start a new thread for this, but this is my list of choices for screen resolution

640x480
800x600
1024x768
1280x1024
1600x1200
1920x 1440
3840x2160

Notice that only the last one is a wide-screen.

I think this URL will tell what Panorama will most likely do on equipmetn that is pretty recent.

It could result in a lot of laptops the native resolution of the laptop working in UEFI boot mode.

BIOS boot native resolution is only possible if the BIOS supports this or the BIOS can be patched by Panorama. But this last option does not work
on all systems (patch BIOS with the resolution of the screen).

A lis of resolutions will not be implemented in reality. What is the best we thing we can get is support for "native screen resolution".

Personally I think WIFI is the biggest thing, followed by multiple monitor support, and then USB-C accessories.

Thank you for work on any of the hardware!!

Access to RAM in the 32-bit address space is going to be one of the next hoops to jump through. The newest systems are lucky to get 2 GB RAM. What we need is to be closer to 4 GB.

An adaptation that might help is to set the swapper to use PAE to access 64-bit memory, but direct access to nearly 4 GB would be better.

Multi-monitor was one of the important things for me since many years. But now as I have one big 42.5" I never want to go back to the usual 2x 24" I had before.
