It is not the pixel pattern that's fixed: it's the triad pattern. This is
as true of colour CRT's as it is of LCD or plasma displays. The pitch
(spacing) of the triads is what, among other things, puts a limit on the
upper resolution bounds of a display device.

Some of the plasma displays shown at recent trade shows are pretty
impressive, as far as viewing angle, etc. goes. Won't be long before your
girlfriend has the TV set on the wall!
