Notes

In exclusive fullscreen mode, if a window size is used which does not match one of the monitor's supported display modes, the window will be resized to the next largest display mode.

Exclusive fullscreen mode is sometimes avoided by users because it can cause issues in some window managers and with multi-monitor setups. In OS X it prevents switching to a different program until fullscreen mode is exited. The "desktop" fullscreen mode generally avoids these issues.
