|It's funny that 60hz has worked fine for years, and very few people complain about it.|
Obviously, these people never did computing on either a 12" monochrome CRT terminal or better yet a 32x20 character image displayed on channel 4 of a black and white Zenith vacuum tube TV set that took longer to warm up than most modern bigscreen projection TVs. Or better yet, try using one of those Amiga interlaced graphics modes. If the 30Hz flicker didn't kill you, the whining sound from the monitor would drive you insane.
Of course, the latest rage nowadays is flatscreen LCD monitors, which renders the whole "60Hz" complaint irrelevent.
So maybe I jumped a little bit off topic... Sue me
