The easiest way I can show you this is simple. Take 640x480 as your base resolution (you could even use 320x240), multiply both numbers by two and you get 1280x960, not 1280x1024. This is what I am referring to when I say that the ratio of the resolution is incorrect. I just wanted to post this information to see if everyone who used 1280x1024 was aware of it.
I still don't understand why you are making such a big deal out of it. It's just a resolution. I personally prefer 1280x1024 over 1280x960. I find that, at least on my monitor, 1280x960 looks a bit weird. It is possible that I have be desensitized to 1280x1024, but I still prefer it over 1280x960.
