EDIT - PLEASE IGNORE
Fixed after I uninstalled Flux...
I haven't been on here in a while, so apologies for just diving back in looking for help...
Something's up with the whites on my MB... I'm getting this horrible banding with whites. it's present across the board, different apps. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? See attached...
I'm running Flux, I'm wondering if that may be causing issues? But the issue persists when I disable it, so I guess not?
EDIT - Seems to be not just the whites, gradients, anything blurred seems to be banding and pixelating

That's exactly what I used it for... a slider for background images in a hero unit. It worked brilliantly for that specific job.
But, yep, it's not ideal for dealing with site wide cms imagery. The images everywhere else on the site were of a lower image weight than what was in the hero unit, so I felt I didn't need to worry about them so much... I just focussed on the big guns.
The fact is there's always going to be that complexity until the spec is finalised and adopted for something like scrset... especially with cms'. I think we're at the stage of what SiFR was to webfonts with responsive images.
Here's a great article on responsive images, if not a little old, but it may lead you somewhere... http://24ways.org/2012/responsive-images-what-we-thought-we-needed/

It's a very complicated subject... wurfl looks good, but my worry with things like that is you're dependant on them. If they cease to be then you've got some more work to do.
I do like picturefill also, Scott is legendary.
I used some code from this article to help achieve something I was developing for a recent WordPress site. It's not ideal but I like the concept and for budgets that are a bit tight I was able to provide responsive imagery where it counts for not much effort.

I too build responsively... one site to rule them all. I've not seen statistics as such as to why, but from all the talks/articles I've consumed on the matter it just makes the most sense to me to do it that way.
Of course there are many different ways to build responsively... but I guess they, along with wether you go for a mobile specific or responsive site in the first place, are dictated by the projects needs.
I think you also have to think about budget... we're all trying to make money at the end of the day and I know I can build a responsive site a lot quicker than it would take me to build a mobile & a desktop specific version.
