I just bought myself this new monitor and as I have long suspected screens are the wrong way around. It is so much easier working in portrait than landscape. Does anyone know why screens are usually in landscape?

It's a Samsung SyncMaster, it swivels between landscapre and portrait, but since I bought it 3 days ago it has remained in portrait.

TV has long been 4:3, so monitors followed the same ratio. Also i think it is way easier to scroll vertically then horizontally, so cutting horizontal real estate can be quite irritating.

Besides, my Windows taskbar is lined up vertically on the side ;)

But of course, depends on the application you use.
