Hi. Sorry for not answering your original question, but I'd like to
express my opinion on widescreen monitors for development.
I think that for typical code with few long lines it makes more sense
to use 'tallscreen' monitors than widescreen. That way more useful
information will fit into screen.

At home I have usual monitor which can be rotated to portrait mode. I
have used portrait mode (with corresponding image rotation via xrandr,
of course) several times for programming and this seems like good
option.
