in general I agree. But I am not sure that this number necessarily applies to subsurface users: Many users will want to use subsurface while traveling (since this is when most of the diving is done) and there I think there is quite a chance that they will take their netbook with them. With too small of a screen you are currently just lost with the preferences as the buttons are out of the screen: It’s not a proper window so there is no close button and you cannot scroll it either. I think it’s worthwhile to make subsurface usable for those users if the price is small enough. And yes, I prefer to run subsurface on my 27” iMac.
