A bit. I know there are lots of people who have bragging rights with their trio of 54" monitors but even as someone who's not destitute, I'm not made of money and don't have enough space.
Still, not downvoting because I kinda sorta agree with you in some regards: virtual desktops provide "good enough" functionality, and efficiency doesn't matter if it's fugly, even speaking as someone who still uses fixed-pitch green-screen applications because I like the aesthetic (well, and functionality, e.g. Alpine for email). Er, I seem to have digressed; where was I...?
