While I do an occasional site in fixed width, I try to use a liquid design.

I have invested a lot of money into my displays and run a 4 monitor system. (3x 20" and 1x 19").

Now while I am not the usual user, it does annoy me when I see a site that is designed for a low resolution, as it forces me to scroll, in effect making me do extra work (scrolling) to see the content. Work that I would not have to do if the design fit my screen.

The basic premise behind building a site is to make it easy as possible for the user.
Even designing for a fixed resolution does not mean that the site will fit the browser properly. If designed in 1024 and the user is using 1024, and they open the site in a windowed browser, they are going to have to scroll in both directions.

Why try to dictate the size when it can be in whatever the user wishes?
Control is not lost, but it does take more effort to achieve a uniform design across a wide range of resolutions.
