On my screen, approximately 2/3 of the width is white. Why all the wasted space? I don't do my development on a mobile device, and don't read this website on one either. What's wrong with letting the content size according to the space available?

Adjust the width to the available screensize. With a fixed size you will never please everybody.
An automatic sized width can easily be read on computer screen (independent of mail readview pane), laptop, readers and mobile phones.

Lots of white space and scrolling.

My suggestion, with the forum threads, have SQL 2008 above SQL 2005.

I have a widscreen (1440x900), and the content is just a thin column in the middle.
Lots of scrolling, not a nice experience.

I do like having the editorial at the top, since I read that before following any of the article links. However, I agree with lots of other commenters about the fixed width. It feels like we've gone back in that respect, not forward.

I like the overall design and the editorial at the top.
However, the content is sailing down the middle of a sea of white space.

The ratio of 1/3 content to 2/3 white space makes it so you have to continually scroll.

It looks to be formatted to be read on a mobile phone. Like many above this post, I read this on a wide monitor and most of the space is blank. I think I also prefer the featured contents above the editorial, although the width change is more important to me.

The featured contents should be put back at the top of the letter so that a summary is immediately viewable.

Also, the width of the original would scale to the available display width, where the new one doesn't.

Much better if these two issues are fixed.

But very nice generally!
