   I think that's the point of confusion. Monitors
and graphics drivers talk about 32-bit display and
that term is common, but there's actually no such
thing. It's 24-bit color. The other byte is for
transparency data, so that Microsoft could show
their semi-transparent techno- kitsch windows on
Win7 and make people think they were getting
something new. :)
