My new monotor in portrait mode just for fun

    I've noticed lots of big displays turned 90 degrees to make them look like mobile phones. The WP7 launch events are a good example. I got myself a 22" IPS panel last week (Dell 22009WA) and decided to use the nice stand and turn my display 90 degrees.


    It's great for long documents and applications like Reason 5 (displayed below) that can't be scaled horizontally but as I suspected the font smoothing gets even worse in that orientation.

    It's fun to play with but not terribly useful for most applications. Obviously video is useless in portrait mode. Look it's tiny Gu between giant black bars.Generic Forum Image
