That would be pretending the irrational. However, the images need not all have the same resolution. Some websites provide the same image with different resolutions, so that, users can choose what is appropriate for them.


Are you happy with anything Debian does?

Do you want a screenshot site without images? :?

Fair enough, but the problem with screenshots of applications is that there's usually text that will become unreadable if you lower the resolution, images already get down-sized if they are above 800x600 with blurry text as result.

Even if the text is unreadable, a smaller image gives a better idea than nothing. Moreover, one does not need to view every image in detail. Having a lower resolution gives the user the ability of choice, and hence, more flexibility.

Is it possible to improve without cristicism? Criticism is an integral part of the mechanism that enables improvement. Without it, one is stuck with dogmatic believes.
Debian == { > 30, 000 packages }; Debian != systemd
The worst infection of all, is a false sense of security!
It is hard to get away from CLI tools.
