The 1024 x 768 is what I am using here at work.
On a 19" screen ( 14’ wide x 12" high viewable ) I have 5" of empty white space running down the right side.That’s a lot of empty white space. So I try wide and that throws in out of whack.
So I go back to v1 style since I am trying to get away from the v2 style.
A work in progress it is and it is getting better.
I just may be one of those that will not be satisfied because I may not fit into the majority stats for pleasing, just putting in my observations in all.
