Default Device Independence in GDI+


I have read in so many locations that GDI+ is device independent, means drawing will look similar independent of the device resolution or whatever. I am using Inches as measurement units in my GDI+ (.NET 2.0) based drawing application. Now my monitor is set at 1024 x 768 and when I draw a rectangle 1 inch wide, it display as exactly 1 inch wide. But when I switch my monitor to, say 800 x 600 or anything different than the original one, the rectangle resizes itself according to the new resolution (which is not 1 inch wide anymore).

Can anybody tell me how can I acheive a GDI+ drawing that is REALLY device-independent, becuz I cannot gaurentee that my users will have their resolution at 1024 x 768. Thanks in advance.
