Personally, I find the full screen display ugly.

It's too low resolution to suit the native resolution of LCD monitors, 
making for a fuzzy image which makes my CM-8 monitor look razor sharp.

Most monitors are widescreen and this stretches the CoCo display to look 

What's wrong with a window anyway?

About all I woul;d suggest is a X2 and X4 zoom factor option to make a 
double/quadruple sized window that still comply's with the native 
resolution of the LCD and keeps the correct aspect ratio.

If I was just running Vcc and needed nothing else running, this would be fine, but that's usually not the case. For someone wanting a "look alike" display for games etc, this would be acceptable.

I also have a habit of having more than one instance of Vcc running at the same time as well as an instance of XRoar (all DW4 enabled in 1 dw4 gui instance :-) and I would rather have the menu bars available. So I'll stick with maxed windows when I want full screen.
