I don't think it's reasonable to group DVI with this. DVI is becoming
standard, and that's as it should be, there's just no point in running
an originally digital signal from the graphics card to a digital LCD
over an analog cable just because. Also, newer, higher-res and larger
LCD panels can't be driven from analog RGB, and that's going to become
more and more common. Intel should just put DVI on their motherboards
and let people use a trivial external adapter if they want analog RGB
out. It should even be cheaper for them, theoretically.
