I am not sure if everybody is into the same problems, but the external display to a LCD monitor from Macbook or Macbook pro is a nightmare. Whatever the way you try, either way it doesn’t have the crisp text as you see with any regular Pc laptop when you connect your laptop to external LCD display. I searched through the web to find any tweaks to make it better..but left with same issues all over without a proper solution. I tried both analog and digitial options, no way it appears better on display..
Looks like lately I started liking Ubuntu (especially 7.04, Feisty) operating system after Windows Vista, in terms of features, compatibility, ease of use and etc. Mac OS in general way behind Windows and Linux, but it has great look and feel and few misc apps; which you need to use Mac to get experienced along with Linux like emulation. But initially I thought as I am new the mac world and without knowing much I might be feeling like that. But I talked with few college going folks who has Macbook; and they too expressed the same..indeed they use Vista on mac…I still see that my Mac OS hangs most of the time, only option for me is to reboot..and at times loading of simple apps takes forever as that of Windows…and frustrating busy cursor spinning most of the time without allowing anything to be done…even on 2.16G clock speed with 2G RAM…may be time will answer when large userbase starts using Mac OS, then you will see the real comments…but will wait for Leopard.
Also, when I followed the instructions as in the macosxhints, then I cant return back to my laptop display, only option is to power it off and restart the system. This is totally annoy.
