It is a proven fact that the bigger the monitor the better the productivity.
This seems inherently false, I could watch movies so much better on a bigger monitor. Who proved this and where?

Call me 'old school' - a single 24" monitor in the office and a single 22" monitor at home.

I never open up more than 24 applications at a time (3 rows uncombined in the Start area).

If I need one more application/window, then I close something (this way I can always track where I am at).

One big one works for me. I have wide tables and often have to view all the columns in a single pane. I hate horizontal scrolling. That was the deciding factor for me.

How about 1 big monitor and 1 projector?

Then it is like having 2 monitors but you really only (technically) have 1.

I hooked up my old SNES to a projector a few times. That was a great way to play Super Mario World.

I think we will do that with the WII. Classic Super Mario bros (the whole series) would be killer on the projector.

That would require some time to spare
