Ubuntu 14.04 LTS HiDPI

So Ubuntu 14.04 has been released and it promises to have better support for HiDPI (Retina) displays.

I decided to take it for a spin inside VMware Fusion on my Macbook Pro. 
I have to say, it is a major, major improvement. In fact, it is pretty good. There is a good slider in the display that increases the icons and interface. It isn't quite 100% perfect as many applications don't work quite right. There are some icons and sliders that don't work right in a few places here and there. But overall, it works pretty good.


  1. Hey there. Thanks for the update! Any chance you could install Eclipse and take a screenshot? It's the main app I rely on every day for work. I'd love to buy a hidpi notebook, but it would stink if I couldn't actually use it. :(
