comment What monitor specifications should be taken into consideration to avoid eye problems?
I like VGA for my 1280x1024 development monitor screen. Plus VGA is analog, not digital, so I made a 20 foot cable that plugs Ito my TV when I want to work there.

Files are 4k at the minimum on the disk, so could it be that?

What if I write my own OS? Do I still need to care about 4k at the beginning or will it work fine?

Not that I know of. You can always just minimize it.
