Ideal Monitor Rotation for Programmers
In the past I had experimented with using portrait displays for reading and programming. The ability to display large amount of text is certainly appealing. Is this the most optimal display for software development? Lets evaluate. Video content is usually in wide format Websites and documents usually end up with a lot of whitespace and padding around them 90° Great for text documents - can read down like a book page Movies don't display well. Rotation Advantages Disadvantages 1° Handy if your desk is on a slight slope fonts render a little weird 45° Middle ground between vertical and horizontal doesn't fit well with non square aspect ratios. Rotation Advantages Disadvantages 22° Longest line length! Webcam starts sliding away. These won't shift / center the display as I don't know the resolution.
