because they wanted to make things complicated by making them 5:4 instead of 4:3
ps. CRTs are better for these reasons:
1. Contrast ratio is unmatched. blacks are pitch black, whites are as white as white gets. (of course this is if you have the contrast and brightness set right)
2. the color spectrum is unmatched. i look at an LCD and laugh because the whites look redish, the greens are blueish and photos barely deserve the name.
3. price, obviously
4. i'm not going to say ghosting, because anyone with a crt knows that if you scroll a webpage down that has white text on a black background, there is ghosting of some nature there.
5. LCD's crack easily.
if you want a cheap replacement for your 21" trinitron, go here: www.accurateIT.com
i got my 21" trinitron from them for 98 bucks, works great. it was refurbished, and the only scratches it has on it are from me
it came in great condition, and shipping was cheap.
oh and 1440x900 will be supported once you plug the monitor in.
