Are 16:10 monitors pretty much gone?

I currently use a Dell u2412 (1920x1200, 16:10) screen, and can't really complain about anything. I was looking into a new monitor since I also like to use my PC for flight sim stuff. Unfortunately, it seems like the trend has been going towards 16:9 screens, which I despise (at least in smaller sizes). There are still some 16:10 screens out there, but looks like slim pickins.

Getting another 24" screen, but in 16:9, seems like a downgrade, so I suppose the thing to do would be go larger. If I want to keep about the same screen height that I have now, I'd need at least a 27" 16:9 screen. Something like the Acer Predator comes to mind, but it's 1920x1080, which to me is not good. I'd have fewer pixels stretched over a larger area.

So I guess it would seem I'd need a larger screen and also more resolution. I can see 16:9 being better for gaming, but for everything else, I prefer 16:10. Annoying. I may just stick with what I have for now. Just curious how the rest of you feel about this.
