Re: Working Hard for U! As a software developer, I'd take a 16:9 display any day. I've got a pair of 1280x1024 displays at work and they're just not wide enough to display decent width lines of code.
Developer: Tomato/MLPPP, Linux/MLPPP, etc »fixppp.org
You got to have my screens. Working as a Designer/Photo.
Duo 2560 x 1440p
1x Apple Cinema Display
1x Crossover 27Q LED-P ($350 CAD) (Same screen as Apple SO CHEAP!)
You can get Catleap, Crossover and other brand from Korea. Shipping is 2 days for me to Montreal.
My own review on those monitors:
Teksavvy.com + 300GB Bandwidth awesomeness!
DavesnothereNo-BHELL-ity DOES have its Advantages
OK, so youse guys were quick to point out a few more exceptions than I did initially, but but about the average 'Joe Six-Pack', who cannot even figure out how to deliberately and consciously RUN two programs at the same time ?
For the vast majority of users, in reality the need is for a PORTRAIT oriented screen, not a landscape one of WHATEVER proportion !
After all, how many web pages are wider than they are tall ?
And how many word processor documents ?
As I posted earlier, the industry has screwed the silent majority, the sheeple, the typical user - call this group what you will - just for the sake of saving about 15% of the pixels and marketing a 16x9 screen to SEEM to be the same as a 4x3 one of the same diagonal dimension when in truth it is not, and when these ordinary folks get their new computer home, they are more concerned with getting it to run at all, rather than understanding the relative merits of various screen geometries, and by the time they figure out that their OLD monitor suited them better, it's long gone.
We have only 2 things about which to worry :
(1) That things may never get back to normal
(2) That they already HAVE !
