    If your work consists of working with columns, then clearly taller is better, but for artists, horizontal space counts for a lot as well. I'm assuming that designers count as doing "real work".
    As a digital artist I concur.

    I use a 16:10 monitor on my desktop which I use for drawing/graphics, even though my other 5:4 monitor has better specs otherwise (native sRGB mode, less backlight leak, etc). It's because the wide screen makes working in a graphics software so much better, you don't have to constantly switch between fullscreen mode and regular because the width gives extra space for the toolboxes and such.

      I'm no artist (the only things I can draw are stick men), so I'll take your word for it.

      Still, it's no denying that 16:9 and 16:10 are really shitty for other kinds of work such as word processing, spreadsheet management, or even playing with toy code in an IDE. Having to scroll up and down every so often really gets on my nerves especially if I am trying to get something done very quickly.

      We really need the 4:3, 3:2 and 5:4 monitors back. Better still if workstation notebooks and business notebooks can ship with these displays instead of 16:9 and 16:10. Entertainment and lifestyle notebooks can continue bundling 16:9 screens.

        16:10 is good for my needs, but I agree 16:9 is getting a bit too narrow vertically.

        3:2 would be a good compromise for general use, it's basically between 4:3 and 16:10.

        5:4 = 1.25
        4:3 = 1.33...
        3:2 = 1.5
        16:10 = 1.6
        16:9 = 1.77...

        On the other hand, if you combine two 5:4 monitors (each in portrait orientation) you get a 16:10 screen. 4:5 + 4:5 = 8:5 = 16:10.
