anyone have experience with big curved monitor
amzn.to/2L3N8FQ
for coding?

@xahlee The more real estate the better, until you have to actually turn your body. I work with three 24" narrow monitors and I find I have to flip the third one up to vertical orientation so I don't have to track too far back and forth. It's surprisingly useful for reading long documents and managing busy email though and then you have the other two for real work :coolcat:

@Ldough1 @xahlee I've never seen a window manager that can handle a giant display surface with an intuitive and ergonomic user interface.

The fact that the product demo photo shows the Windows desktop environment makes me giggle; it's the worst window manager in the industry.

@progo @Ldough1
dissing on Windows?

am not sure about that. but also, if you use autohotkey, one can make it more efficient than any linux tiling manager.
