No. You misunderstood me. I mean that we, the users, cannot force apps to run in non retina mode. Developers can do whatever try want, but the majority of new apps either are or will be retina enabled apps. It'll be like the iPhone and people will be up in arms that their games and apps aren't designed for the retina iPad screen, as many already are. I see countless apps rhat have complaints about the non-retina display.
Simply put, any app that is a retina app will run almost exactly the same, if not better, on the iPad 2 because the new iPad has to do tons extra work to power the display, which is why I held off for the next iteration.
