    In my lifetime, hopefully?

    Seriously, has anyone got any updated info on whether Apple will work R.I. into the operating system? It's my one remaining serious gripe about the OS and y 27" iMac.

    Yeah, I'm well aware of that.

    Apple needs to incorporate Resolution Independence. Hell, my wife turned down a new iMac because "the damned type on the screen is too small...even the font sizes on my old Windows laptop are adjustable."

    And, of course, she is absolutely correct.

    Let's hope 10.7 finally fulfills this promise from Apple. I use a Mac Mini as an HTPC hooked to my 40" HDTV and the font issue is bad, real bad.

    It's not just that. We need a resolution independent web to form too. One where, you can scale the website larger and graphics don't become pixelated, or increase the font size and tables and layout retain their proper form.

    One day..

    It's already in iOS.

    This is also something I have been looking forward to when they first stated it would be released, and very disappointed when it was not.

    I really want this feature

    It's not. iOS allows free zooming/scaling, but you still get pixelated graphics once you zoom in to a point. Obviously far less noticeable on the size of the iPhone's screen, but with the iPhone 4's resolution, it is still noticeable.
