With my MacbookPro I've had a pretty bad time using Win8, 100% dpi was too small and 200% looked weird

I don't have it anymore, I've passed the rMBP to my wife and I used her MBA since I got my 27" iMac
Could you post a screenshot of 200%?

That's an app bug not a windows bug. MediaPortal used to do this, but now works properly in hgh dpi.
I just changed the DPI on my work computer to verify that the same massively annoying bug still exists in Windows 7 DPI scaling. If you change your DPI, the superbar won't ever hide behind an app that's full screen. You have to change the superbar to autohide to get it to go away. This is incredibly annoying on an HTPC that frequently has full screen apps that you don't want to superbar hanging out on. This is more annoying than any of the blurry third party issues. Plus, regardless of who is to blame, there are so many inconsistencies when using high DPI mode in Windows that it's just hard to seriously use. They need to push third parties to update their apps with all these higher resolution screens coming out. It'll be impossible to use an HTPC on a 4k screen without DPI scaling.

I don't expect that there is any such replies to this topic.
I use Windows 8 Pro with 200% on a rMPB it goes pretty good, however not everything is suitable.
Here are some examples:
Desktop + Origin (very small even if the dpi is set to 200%) http://d.pr/i/fVN6
VLC (dialog box not adapted) http://d.pr/i/GOzp
NSIS (police blur) http://d.pr/i/22Uu
Steam (police blur) http://d.pr/i/GDb8
Kaspersky (adapted interface but font too small) http://d.pr/i/UvRx
Google Chrome (police blur) It should be fixed in a future version of Chrome http://code.google.c...etail?id=149881
For now the only apps that I found partially adapted to Retina screens are Office 2013, VS 2012 (fuzzy icon) and the Metro interface.
Besides, I have another question how to make IE 10 or Chrome displays images x2 Apple's website!
I would put other screenshot later.

Interesting. Mine is not doing that. I launched XBMC from Start, then opened an explorer window. Then went back to XBMC. The bar was not on top. I'm using 8, so maybe its fixed on 8.
Yes there is room for improvements.

Again, it's a problem with XBMC. they need to fix their code and add support for high DPI. MP used to have the same issue, which has since been fixed for the last 6-12 months, not sure.
Tell XBMC to fix their broken code, or change to a working properly coded MC solution. both MediaPortal and Plex have no problem with the taskbar in High DPI.

with what browser, never had this issue on any videos in a browser, just specific programs, which don't support high dpi modes.
