  2. So am I understanding correctly that we're calling the 'best' the largest thing that satisfies the maximum dimensions? I'm curious is it really the case that biggest is best?

    1. Well, from point of view using the available space, yep. Of course the user can always set what ever custom mode is available. Also, this does apply to "text mode", which is terminal emulator implemented by UEFI firmware. Later with proper FB console, this text mode is just for fallback anyhow, and will mostly be unused.

    2. OK, I'll defer to your judgement on this.
