Good Afternoon.

I am looking at putting together a fairly simple build, having played with Kubuntu before and desiring a machine specifically for University work (as next year I start extramural studies).

My first question may seem a little odd to some people, but to obsessive people like me it will make sense; what screen resolutions is US compatible with? I.e. if I was to include an unusual resolution in my build (2560x1080 anyone?), then will splash screens and backgrounds etc look distorted?

Thanks in advance for any help :) I'll introduce myself formally once the semester is underway.

In the same breath, I should probably ask if US has the auto window resize feature that Kubuntu has. It's similar to "Snap" in WIndows 7/8. Sorry, I don't know its official name :roll:

If I'm not mistaken the snapping windows feature is not support in MATE but it is in Xfce.
Which desktop environment are you using?
If you have MATE installed, you could install Compiz and enable the features you like in the settings.

US is Ubuntu based so it should support all the resolutions Ubuntu does. I searched for 2560x1080 on Google and it seems to work in Ubuntu. If you have problems setting 2560x1080, it would help if you give us the brand of your screen.

Cheers
David
