WPF and Pixel Accurracy

I wonder who had the idea that UI graphics should no longer be pixel accurate. Naturally, most developers have abandoned WPF and Silverlight by now and have started looking int jQueryUI or other web-based UI managers, but I wonder what they were thinking.

I guess they imagined that screen resolutions would just “grow and grow” and we’d all have screens with phenomenal resolution in the future. But then what happened? Every other panel out there is 1080p for workstations (save for a few exceptions), while most laptops come with 1400×800 or something in that range. Smaller panels as found in smartphones have a high pixel density but small displays, and, I might add Microsoft hardly has any presence in that segment.

Man, I am fed up with WPF right about now.
