Yup.  This is one reason why I've made no effort to upgrade all of our
monitors to LCDs.  Admittedly the major one is the cost; but, the cost
aside, I'd be willing to -- and would like to -- get a good LCD monitor
on babylon5, because babylon5's display runs at maximum physical
resolution (currently 1920x1200) all the time.  But vorlon, my game
machine, will probably always have a tube.  Because, being a gamebox, it
operates at varying resolutions.  And while an LCD monitor can be
pin-sharp at its native physical resolution, at any other resolution it
looks like ass...  and not in a good way.
