A colleague pointed me to this post about display size improving productivity.
It brings up a favorite topic of mine... With my current laptop (@1024x768), it's a bit of a pet-peeve.
It totally makes sense that tuning bandwidth to wetware improves productivity. Display real-estate is the front-side bus to wetware!
That's why I also like the Dvorak keyboard layout... Personally, I never achieved the level of proficiency with twenty +/- years of QWERTY (with formal training) that I have with the Dvorak layout over the past three years. Dvorak's a hard curve to get past, but I committed to it in the interest of tuning bandwidth (and maybe hoping to reduce RSI).
