I am bugged that we can't have larger displays. 7" is still way too small for serious programming development.
As a 'control panel' or user interface to some app, it's okay. But not for making your Pi 3 an all-in-one PC with
a 15 to 17 inch class display.
I am putting in my wish for a display interface that addresses a much broader selection of
display possibilities than DSI.
I know HDMI is there, but with connectors coming off the board at all points of the compass, it makes
what could be a really compact unit much larger and klutzy looking with all those big connectors and stiff
wires fanning out in every direction.
I was hoping those flat and flexible ribbon connectors that I saw on the Raspberry Pi boards had real promise,
but alas, no. Not enough support - especially when I'm told that Broadcom would have to be persuaded to
write drivers for every different display! If that's true, they might as well have left the connector off altogether.
If anyone has discovered a 15 to 19 inch display, preferably a cheap one that is just the lcd panel itself that
could be built into something of our own design, please let me and others know.
Ideally, I would like to rescue a lcd panel from some defunct laptop or monitor and couple it to the Pi.
There are many Chinese distributors of replacement lcd panels that are relatively inexpensive, compared
to buying a full-fledged HDMI monitor - I would like to take advantage of these.
Thanks for any help
