At my job, I have a dual monitor setup (16:9 24" + 4:3 20"). I split
my left monitor into two window stacks with i3wm, then put an Emacs
frame in each stack. This gives me roughly 100-character-wide frames
which happily coincides with my team’s coding standard.

This way, I can work with up to 4 buffers when necessary, or
independently switch any of the stacks to a different application
(xterm or Firefox or whatever).
