  • The limitation on the windows size if a function of the specifications of the monitor and the driver for your video display adapter.  It's not a limitation of the Windows operating system. You will see the exact same type of behavior no matter what operating system you use. That's the way it's been for as long as I can remember.

    So, what exactly is your gripe?
