It has been my experience for several years that most, it not all, versions of Linux are designed for a minimum resolution of 1024x768. If the screen is smaller, important parts of the window disappear off the sides and bottom of the screen. There are ways to work around this but it's tricky. On the other hand Ubuntu Phone is now in the picture so there must be someone working at designing for small screens. I believe it's part of the current Canonical strategy.
Abject apologies. I remembered about netbooks after I posted. Adapting Linux to the smaller screen was essential to the success of the netbook such as my own EeePC 901 sitting about 2 feet away as I write.
