Screen sizes

What is the target screen size for Gnome? 640x480? 800x600?

As things stand right now, Gnome doesn't work very well without a 1024x768
screen. Applications like calendar stick off of both ends with anything
smaller, and very little testing seems to have done on typical systems.

To add insult to injury, most X window managers don't deal well with
oversized windows. Typical behavior includes centering the window on the
screen so that the title bar and menu are both unreachable.

I've got novice Linux users at work who are continually baffled by these
problems. =)
