I didn't say I hated widescreen displays, and at that, the reason I didn't get one isn't Apple. First off, all of my preexisting media is saved in a 4:3 (non-widescreen) aspect ratio, which would either crop, stretch, or display bars on the sides when displayed on a 16:9 screen such as a widescreen is. On top of that, I didn't want to have to buy a new notebook case. I can barely fit this into my current one, and a 15.4" or a 17" would be out of the question.
The 1024x768-ness of that wallpaper was generated by six years of using 1024x768 wallpapers. Suddenly switching to 1400x1050 doesn't cause you to suddenly grow out of making 1024x768 wallpapers.
Given that all of my capture/editing junk (currently an old VHS camcorder, 720x480 capture card, and standard-def TV) is also 4:3, it'll probably be awhile until I make the jump to widescreen. I can't afford to replace any of it just yet.
