Hah! That's pretty much what i was going to say. I have two 4:3 screens at work one is 1600x1200 that I do most my work on and the other 1280x1024 that I keep documentation and guides on and a couple smaller windows that monitor network and server status, also the 2nd screen is what I use when I'm using RDP or LANDesk windows maximized. At home I have two 16:10 22" widescreens that are 1680x1050, I keep my main monitor nearly centered in front of me, the second monitor is rotated 90 degrees and usually has the guide/documentation I need for the project. Yes, I can work on one screen but it really isn't as efficient when my documentation is in PDF or some digital format. Alt tabbing doesn't work that well since I'm usually juggling multiple programs so I usually cascade my windows so i can see the corners of all of them and lose 10% in screen realestate to have them all tiled and accessible. I have a decent dual core netbook (ASUS 1205PN) that I use when travelling it works well enough, but not nearly as "work productive" as sitting at my desktop with the two windows. ...also on my home machines with the widescreens running Windows 7 I put my task bar on the left side of my screen vertically. I too want every bit of screen height i can get, and with widescreen monitors I'm usually more concerned with vertical height as I almost always have plenty of "width" on my widescreen.
