The personal computer's display is a key component in the interactive and natural user interfaces that personal computer applications provide. The display architecture determines how realistic the pictures on the monitor will be and how interactive the application will be. This article describes the technological and architectural evolution of personal computer displays, and the impact of this evolution on the system and application software. It then discusses the future of these displays and their future uses, on the basis of ongoing technical research and the users' desires and demands.
