Yes but the people who like 16:9 are for the wrong reason. They don't go and say "I need more width on my desktop for my programs".. they say "I don't want black lines when I watch movies." But most (by far) movies have black lines in any case... few of them are filmed in 16:9. In fact, some movies on Blu-ray are cropped to 16:9... it's the 4:6 full screen story all over again. Until software will use left and right to put menu bars and ribbon bars... we need height.
