WIN 95 and 1024*768 display

Options found so far:

-1-
use Scitech Display Doctor 7 Beta. Nice but (relatively) slow. License expires after 21 days. Hint: remove it from the Start menu for faster booting.

-2-
use svga.exe and 'vgapatch p' as suggested for Win 3.1. Original post:

Go for 1024*768*256. Not perfect either but faster and no nagging about a license. Main problem : terribly slow when it comes to shutdown so I kill the machine when all done and accept the resulting scandisk at next boot..... O and there's something about DOS boxes but you have a somewhat similar problem in Win 3.x with this solution.

Note: you can install svga under Win 98 SE but the resulting VM has lost some of its stability, in addition to the quirks above.
