+ - Ask Slashdot: Good linux desktop environment for hi-def/retina displays? 1

Submitted by Volanin
Volanin (935080) writes "I have been using linux for the last 15 years both at home and at work (mostly gnome and now unity). Recently, I gave up to temptation and bought myself a macbook retina 15". As you can read around, linux still has no good support for this hardware, so I am running it inside a virtual machine. Running in scaled 1440x900 makes the linux fonts look absolutely terrible, and running in true 2880x1800 makes them beautiful, but every UI element becomes so tiny, it's unworkable. Is there a desktop environment that handles resolution independence better? Linux has had support for SVG for a long time, but gnome/unity seems adamant in defining small icon sizes and UI elements without the possibility to resize them."
