Hi Joe,

You're right in general, but I think it is fair to set up a minimum size for
an application. I also do this, on occasion with websites. I ask myself,
what is the minimum screen size I expect people to have to view this site or
run this program. It doesn't mean others can't make it smaller if they
want, but the site or application would be better viewed with more real
estate. I typically use 800x600, but I think most people have at least
1024x768 these days.

Generally, you can be absolutely certain that when you write numbers like
750 and 850, you
have built a program that will run on exactly ONE computer, the one you
are using for
development, given the current settings of screen resolution, screen size,
graphics card,
graphics device driver, and default user font. And probably a few other
things, such as
the angular position of Mars with respect to Jupiter.
