GUI design seems to still be generally catering for the lowest common denominator and assuming screen real estate is a premium. Many people now have large screens, and when sound designing on a specific VST a lot of people would be happy for the VST to go full screen, whilst a lot of GUI designers are now offering scaling (which is incredibly nessesery) I am surprised that most don’t offer a bigger, different layout where all the controls behind tabs or windows are put on a 1 screen GUI so that everything can be seen and mapped and nothing is hidden. I know UHE did this as an alternative skin for Bazzile but I have seen far to few GUI designers do this, and scaling and full screen modes normally just result in a lot of free space or just bigger existing controls.
