It's not a question of resolution.  It's just
too much *canvas*!  You have to sit back far
enough to be able to "take it all in" (without
getting a stiff neck from looking up, left,
right, down too far).  As you increase the
resolution of the display, things tend to get
*smaller* (finer) -- assuming you want to *use*
all that canvas!

As eyes get OLDER, trying to make out those
fine details a few feet away gets to be a PITA.
I much prefer being able to sit close enough
to my displays that I can read them with an
unaided eye.  So, I put myself in the center
of 4 of them arranged in a U.  I can swivel
my chair when I want to move from *writing*
code to *testing* it, etc. without having to
add extra display space "on a single plane".

Works great for me especially if I need to have
different targets attached to those displays!
