Resolving screen size?

Filed under: Miscellaneous — _ds_ @ 15:26

$ xdpyinfo | grep -e screen -e dimension -e resolution
default screen number: 0
number of screens: 1
screen #0:
dimensions: 2560x1024 pixels (675x270 millimeters)
resolution: 96x96 dots per inch

How did, in what passes for normal usage, did resolution become confused with dimensions? Something to do with same dimensions (in pixels) but differing physical sizes?
