I use a 17 inche display with 1920 X 1200 resolution (laptop). Now, to be honest 17 inche is freaking too big for a laptop. I think the best size is 15 inche.

I came across this post "Join the dark side of Visual Studio" and thought I might join the dark side. Well, I am happy to say that I have joined the dark side.
Here is a screen shot of my IDE:
I dare you to join the dark side :)
