ModShop's equation was for awesomeness, not productivity.
Ya, production OF awesomeness.
haha. Some people need something in the background to concentrate on their work.
I work much better with music, so why not watch movies while working ;)
I love my two monitors and I'd definitelxy go for a third one if I had space on my desk!
I'd have a second monitor, but my desk is too small. However, I can easily mount it on the wall with an adjustable bracket.
I work all day with Pandora playing. I work just fine
I don't listen to anything or watch anything myself when coding. Though I don't listen much music anyways :-/.
I find that movie during work is impossible and it doesn't make sense.
But music is perfectly OK. just nothing too loud.
I use both screen for writing code. mostly to compare the 2 files like declaration and definition ...
I just cant work with just 1 screen any more. it makes me feel uncomfortable
Anybody have a monitor that rotates 360 degrees ? Rotating screen sideways, getting all that extra room up/down to view more lines of code.
Once you go to two monitors, you'll never go back.
3 monitors is even better, but it's not as world defining as 2 monitors.
Sometimes when I go in-field I have to use my laptop with no extended monitor and it's a PAIN!
Yeah, using a laptop in-field is kindof a pain. Luckily I can use Ubuntu that gives me multiple workspaces, at the least.
I've tried using two monitors, twice now, but I hate it, it is really distracting and moving your sight from one to the other doesn't feel natural, 1 nice size monitor is all I need.
|1 nice size monitor is all I need.|
A single 50 inch monitor would be neat, but two smaller ones is all I can budget for.

that's just insanely big though, I'd have to sit a meter away just to see the whole screen, mid 20's is enough and maybe low 30's, I have a 24 inch I think
Everyone's different. I find looking from one monitor to the other is as disruptive as looking from one window to another (on one monitor) - that is, I don't even notice.
A single 24 inch monitor presents so little space that it would (and indeed, when I have to use just one monitor, clearly does) affect the rate at which I work.
