Also, do people find letterboxing
annoying? I've been using 16:10 screens for almost a decade now and the boxing on both 4:3 and 16:9 didn't bother me at all.
I'm not so bothered about letterboxing either. Watching 16:9 videos on my 16:10 monitor gives some room at the bottom for player controls with impacting on the video area too much or at all, for example.
