Vertical space is a limiting factor on how much code one can see at a
time.  I use old-fashioned CRT monitors with 4x3 aspect ratios and
dizzyingly high resolution; I usually work with two columns of code, but
can get four if I give up on things like xterms.  I still find it rather
limiting: I have to remember everything which won't fit on the screen.

I've no idea how people manage with these ridiculous widescreen monitors.
