Right now, we have a screen which has 2880 x 1800 physical pixels and that Windows 7 can handle a resolution of 2880 x 1800 without problems (except for the fact that the text looks small by default).

Given that, why does there have to be downscaling and upscaling involved ?

When Adobe says they are making Photoshop Retina display compatible, they mean that a 2880 x 1800 pixels photo will be displayed with a 1:1 pixel mapping with NO downscaling + upscaling involved … And NO need to change the Mac setting from “Best for Retina display".

So when Parallels say they let us “take full advantage of the retina display” we expect the same thing: A 2880 x 1800 Windows desktop should be displayed without any scaling involved.

In order to get Windows to actually display 2880x1800 pixels, you need to set your Mac to use that resolution.

Apple doesn’t let you do this (because then everything looks so small) but you can use FreeRez to do it!

What about with Mountain Lion “retina” support. How does this work out?
